In our culture, it is much more common for women to visit the doctor than men. Because of this, more men are diagnosed with diseases or illnesses in its late stages instead of early stages. Each year, June is celebrated as Men’s Health Month. And, we want to spread awareness of this crucial month, as well. Consider the following health issues that affect certain men and discover how we can help:
Low Testosterone (Low T)
Did you know that roughly 13 million American men deal with Low T? Many factors may contribute to the onset of Low T such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. If you have noticed any of the following symptoms, contact the specialists at USGA: weak erections, low sex drive, reduced muscle mass, and decreased enjoyment of life in general. Fortunately, there are treatments available to stop Low T from dictating your life.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
One out of three men suffer from erectile dysfunction. With ED, it is impossible to maintain an erection long enough to complete sexual intercourse. There are several issues that can cause ED such as trauma, medications, hormone problems, surgery, alcoholism, and diabetes. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with ED for the rest of your life. At Urology Specialists of Georgia, we have five treatment options available to overcome ED.
With age, it’s not uncommon for a man’s prostate to grow in size. Frustratingly, the prostate pushes against the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). This obstruction causes several irritating symptoms such as a weak stream, nocturia, frequency, incomplete emptying of the bladder, and more. There are several non-surgical options you can use to take charge of your symptoms.
Although June is set aside as Men’s Health Month, the team at USGA wants to help men overcome issues every month of the year. If you’re experiencing any of the above issues, call us at (478) 745-6576 to schedule an appointment.
