Men’s Primary and Managed Care
At Men’s Vitality Center, we know that men have unique health needs that should be addressed by knowledgeable, specialized physicians. While many men have to seek out numerous different healthcare providers to address all of their needs, we proudly offer a wide variety of men’s primary healthcare services in one convenient location. A few of the most common men’s health treatments and screenings we offer include:
Cholesterol Screening and Treatment
If you are over the age of 35, then you should schedule regular cholesterol screenings with your men’s healthcare provider. Many men struggle with high cholesterol, and the effects of elevated cholesterol levels are often serious. A few of the most common risks associated with high cholesterol include heart attack, stroke, poor blood circulation, and more.
These risks significantly increase if you are a smoker, have diabetes, have high blood pressure, or if you are overweight. If your family has a history of heart attacks, or if you have personally struggled with heart disease or clogged arteries, then you should schedule more frequent screenings.
Diabetes Screenings and Treatment
Type I and Type II diabetes are both serious conditions that require dedicated, ongoing treatment. You should contact our men’s health clinic for a diabetes screening if you eat a diet high in sodium and low in fruits and vegetables, if you are overweight, or if you lead a sedentary lifestyle. If you have a family history of diabetes, then you should be sure to schedule frequent check-ups to monitor your blood sugar.
Depression and other mental health issues are incredibly important to discuss, but unfortunately, often stigmatized. We take mental health seriously at Men’s Vitality Center, and our men’s health providers are here to help if you’re struggling with depression or another mental health issue.
If you feel sad, hopeless, or have lost interest in activities that once gave you pleasure, then get in touch with one of our physicians to talk about your symptoms. You’re doing yourself, your family, and your friends a favor by seeking help.
High Blood Pressure
Untreated high blood pressure can cause significant damage to your body. Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure greatly increases your risk of:
- Damaged arteries
- Heart disease
- Dementia and other cognitive problems
- Kidney damage and failure
- Eye damage
- Sexual dysfunction
- Bone loss
Given that high blood pressure is so dangerous, it’s important to find a men’s healthcare provider who can help you successfully lower and maintain your blood pressure. Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson is here to help, and our physicians will help you find lifestyle changes, medications, and other ways to lower your blood pressure and improve your quality of life.
Weight Loss Management
There’s nothing easy about losing weight. Whether you’ve tried to lose weight before or are just now beginning your weight loss journey, having a weight loss expert in your corner is one of the best ways to set yourself up for long-term success.
We understand that it’s difficult to know where to turn for reliable information about dieting, exercising, and living a healthy lifestyle, but our weight loss programs for men provide you with all the information you need to know. If you’re interested in medical weight loss, then get in touch with our physicians and we’ll work with you to find the right weight loss program for your needs.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
It’s completely expected that your testosterone levels will decline as you age, but many men experience a more significant drop than others, leading to unpleasant and life-disrupting symptoms. You can read more about the causes and symptoms of low testosterone on this page. If you’re concerned about your testosterone levels, then reach out to Men’s Vitality Center to schedule a testosterone replacement therapy evaluation.
These are just a few of the many services we offer at our Tucson men’s health clinic. If you’re interested in learning more about the services listed on this page, or about anything else we offer, then we invite you to get in touch with our office by filling out the form below.
