Making sure to take preventative health measures can go a long way towards avoiding serious health problems. Ordering common men’s health lab testing can make people aware of health concerns that can be dealt with through medications or lifestyle changes. One of the largest health concerns for men is heart disease. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the Unites States accounting for 1 in every 4 male deaths. High cholesterol is one of the major contributing factors to heart disease. Ordering a basic lipid panel is a great way for a person to monitor their cholesterol. The CDC estimated that between 70-89% of sudden cardiac events occur in men. A C-Reactive Protein (CRP) High Sensitivity test can be used to measure a person’s risk for cardiac events like a heart attack or stroke. Another major health concern for men is cancer, with Prostate Cancer being one of the most common forms to develop in American men. About 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with Prostate cancer during their lifetime. A Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test can be ordered as a screening for Prostate Cancer. Prostate testing is recommended every 2-3 years for men over the age of 50 provided they do not have a family history of prostate cancer. If they do have a family history, testing should begin at the age of 40. Diabetes is also one of the major health concerns that many men face. Nearly 12% of men age 20 or older have diabetes. Tests such as the Hemoglobin A1C and Blood Glucose can assess risk for or help manage diabetes. It is also a good idea for men to check their testosterone levels with a test such as the total testosterone or free testosterone. Maintaining a healthy testosterone level can help avoid a number of health issues. There are a number of other common tests which are typically used as to evaluate general health and screen for potential health concerns such as a complete blood count (CBC), comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), and complete urinalysis. The most important thing to remember is that getting tested is an important part of monitoring your health. There is no need to wait until a person is experiencing symptoms. In most cases, health problems that are detected sooner are easier to treat.
