I’m officially 50… my wife keeps telling me I need to go to the doctor to get checked out since I’m getting older and haven’t been to the doctor in a while.. What kinds of things should I be expecting? Are there certain diseases more common as we men age?
I’m sure you know to expect this… but, your wife is right. Go see a doctor! Jokes aside, something as simple as an annual physical can help to make sure that you don’t have anything to worry about. Once you hit your 40’s, too, it’s important to take proactive and preventative steps to ensure that you are and remain healthy.
Your primary care provider should be the first place you start, and schedule a general checkup. From there you’ll know more about your own health, can discuss that with your wife and address any concerns they find should there be any.
Taking a step back though and working with broad generalizations – there are some more frequently diagnosed health conditions for men in their 50’s, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and even smaller issues that may become noticeable in every day life – like the loss of hearing and vision.
Thank you! I think this thread here is really very helpful. Maybe ED is very common these days. I would recommend that you have a look at a service where you can Buy Viagra Online for some info about other medicine. I think you will like it a lot, good luck 🙂
