Step Up to the Check Up

June 20, 2017

Let’s face it, no one really enjoys going to the doctor.

None of us wake up like it is Christmas morning when we have an appointment, but when it boils down to it, to live a healthy life and to age well, preventative care is a major key.

Studies reveal that men are less likely to go to the doctor than women. although this may not seem like news to many of us, the numbers are astronomical. Men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic lower respiratory disease
  • Unintentional injuries
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Kidney disease
  • Suicide

Skipping preventative care and screenings not only affect you but your family as well. Start today with a preventive health check-up and screening.
