Men’s Health Topics You Need to Know

With Father’s Day right around the corner as well, we want to take some time to focus on the importance of men’s health and wellness, both physical and mental.

At Decision Critical, we partner with some incredible men’s health providers in our community. One of our go-to recommendations for all things men’s health is Our Lady of the Lake Physician’s Group Men’s Health Center​. Dr. Curtis Chastain and Dr. Tyler Boudreaux are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to men’s unique needs, and their concierge approach to providing exceptional healthcare is right in line with ours.

We’ve tapped them to share some of their top recommendations for men’s health, and you won’t want to miss out on this valuable information they have to offer!

Routinely, men should have a complete blood count, serum chemistry levels, which includes cholesterol, liver function, and glucose. He should also have thyroid levels checked, and a urinalysis to check for microscopic blood in the urine.

Probably one of the most overlooked things men need at any age is a blood pressure check. It’s simple, but the information that we gather from that one test is extremely important.

Number one health tip for men is: Focus on getting better sleep. Try to go to bed at the same time every night and get at least six hours of uninterrupted sleep. That improves daytime, energy more than anything else we know.

The number one benefit of a concierge service is access. One of the biggest issues in medicine today is the inability to get an appointment for a medical issue in a timely fashion. When you are a member of a concierge practice like Lake Men’s Health, you receive access to care that same day or next day.

Men need blood pressure screenings starting at age 18, and some men are 18 years behind the eight ball on that!

My #1 health tip for men would be to treat your health like you do your wealth portfolio. It likely needs an expert’s opinion at least once a year. And that is if things are stable. If something is uncertain, don’t be afraid of quarterly meetings!

The top benefit of a clinic like ours or a service like Decision Critical is having a full team to accommodate the busy schedule of a businessman. Daily schedules can vary almost hour to hour so having a flexible healthcare team with your best interest and lifestyle in mind is paramount. 

How Our Nurses Can Help With Men’s Health

At Decision Critical Concierge Nursing, something you might not know is that we care for just as many male patients as we do female patients. Men’s health needs are equally as unique and complex as women’s health, and our experienced private duty nurses and community partners are here to help. Elective or physician ordered surgery, colonoscopy prep, wound care, elderly care, or complications from chronic diseases such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, or Alzheimer’s/dementia – we can help with it all!

Men love our wellness services, too. IV Hydration and weekly in-office B12 clinics can help you feel your best and operate at peak health, especially during the summer months. Our services are easy to book online, and our nurses come to you to deliver IV Hydration in the comfort of your home or office. Our popular IV Hydration Drip Bundle delivers all the benefits of IV Fluids, Glutathione, and a B12 Injection – an ideal combination for all your wellness needs, whether you’re recovering from an illness, need a hydration boost from the heat, or just want to feel like your best self this summer.

Finally, we believe one of the most often overlooked aspects of men’s health is mental health. If you’re a caretaker for your wife recovering from surgery, a child or loved one with a chronic illness, or an aging parent, our private duty nurses can step in and help relieve the burden and stress of care. We know you want what’s best for them, and the details can often be a lot to manage. Don’t let your own health suffer – let us help provide the exceptional, compassionate care and peace of mind you and your loved ones need!
