Some of men’s most common health concerns
- Changes in energy level. Several problems may be behind fatigue, loss of interest and lack of sleep.
“It often ends up being mood-related illnesses such as depression and anxiety,” says Sanford’s Dr. Dan Dahl.
- Alcohol and tobacco use. The family physician says men sometimes become motivated to address their alcohol and tobacco use when it interferes with work or relationships.
- Decreased sexual desire and erectile dysfunction. (See sidebar on men’s sexual health.)
- Changes in urination. Dahl says he’s often asked about nighttime urination or a weakened or slowed stream.
“These symptoms can all be signs of an enlarged prostate or potentially prostate cancer,” he says.
