Men's Health CDP

Have a Heart-to-Heart with the Men in your Life

Is there a man in your life that you love and worry about? Does their lifestyle have you concerned about their overall health and well-being?

Or, do you put your health last on a long list of "more important" things?

No matter the situation, Coteau des Prairies specialized men's health services can help you or the men you care about realign priorities and get back to feeling great.

In general, men often pay less attention to their overall health than women and are susceptible to life-threatening diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and depression. Coteau des Prairies Health Care offers services and programs to help you or someone you love put health at the top of that priority list.

Follow your Heart to a Healthy Life

Here are a few other men's tips to keep in mind when focusing on keeping healthy.

  1. If something doesn't feel right, listen to your body and schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. Preventative screenings like colonoscopies and early detection are a great way to protect your health and address any issues before they worsen.
  1. Do you know your family's health history? It's a great way to be informed and be aware of a disease that runs in your family that could impact your health in the future. In addition, it's vital information that will help your primary care physician create a proactive healthcare plan tailored just to you.
  1. Don’t forget about the close mind/body connection. While some amount of stress is natural, it also affects your whole body. So, mind your mental health as it can be impactful on your overall well-being and physical health.

Take some time for self-care and make your health a priority today. Annual preventative care is typically covered by insurance so schedule your annual physical with a CDP primary care provider today.
