While maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important for both genders, men need to pay more attention to certain areas as they are more likely to smoke or drink, make unhealthy or risky choices and put off regular checkups and medical care. Fortunately, there are many things men can do to maintain optimal health. This includes having an active daily routine which could lower blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and weight. Though men are more likely to develop cardiovascular or heart disease, by implementing these lifestyle modifications while maintaining an open dialogue about men’s health with your health care practitioner, the risk of developing these conditions is lessened.
