Men...What Should You Be Doing to Stay Healthy?

Men, make a commitment to taking control of your health. Practice healthy behaviors and see your doctor regularly. Pretending something isn’t important doesn’t make it so. Sharing with your doctor your family history and your concerns is essential. Women, let the men in your life know how important their health is to you. By taking good care of themselves, men will be healthier and our families will be better for it.

Dr. Chance Davis, primary care, Franciscan Physician Network at CityWay

Health Tip:

EAT RIGHT! Most health problems that younger and middle aged men run in to, believe it or not, are related to one of two things: diet and exercise! Staying away from fatty, greasy, and fried foods is a quick and easy way to make sure your cholesterol is under control. If not, it could lead to heart attacks and stroke, even in young men!  It is also important for men to see their primary care physician every year. If you don’t have one, come see Dr. Davis at our new CityWay Location.
 
What Dr. Davis Does to Stay Healthy:
Dr. Davis tries to make health-conscience food choices by watching his portion sizes and avoiding greasy or fried foods. He goes to the gym 4 to 5 days a week for an hour a day.

Dr. Peter Garrett, radiation oncologist with Franciscan Health Cancer Center

 
Health Tip: 

Stop smoking, if you’re a smoker, and maintain a normal weight. Carrying excess weight is a risk factor for a range of cancers, including uterine, pancreas, liver, esophagus and kidney.  According to a new study, 42% of all new cancer diagnosis are attributed to obesity. 

If you do smoke or are overweight, there are a variety of cancer screenings, such as the $49 Lung Scan, available at the Franciscan Health Cancer Center, which is a great way to detect cancer early.

 
What Dr. Garrett does to stay Healthy:

Dr. Garrett, stays healthy by exercising and eating healthy. He enjoys running and also rides his bike at home while watching TV. He uses an app on his smart phone to track his nutrition and weight so that he is always within a healthy BMI.

Dr. Dan Williams, orthopedic surgeon with Franciscan Physician Network Orthopedic Specialists

 

Health tip: 
The more weight you carry, the harder it is on your joints. By maintaining a healthy weight through eating right and regular exercise, you can decrease the risk of obesity.  This in turn decreases the risk of arthritic joint pain, improves joint function, and lowers inflammation. 
 
What Dr. Williams does to stay Healthy: Dr. Williams stays healthy by regularly exercising with interval training to get his herat rate up and allow for more of a variety in his work out.  He also eats a diet  low in carbs. 

Dr. Ryan Daly, cardiologist with Franciscan Physician Network Indiana Heart Physicians

Health Tip:
To decrease the risk of heart disease, the most important thing smokers can do is to quit. If you have diabetes, it’s important to control your sugar. Men need to know their family history of heart disease and their blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass index (or weight) numbers. Keeping your numbers in a normal range can do a lot to help prevent a heart attack. 
 
If you don’t know your numbers, can you make an appointment with the Franciscan Health Screening Center.
 
How Dr. Daly stays Healthy:
Dr. Daly stays healthy by keeping a heart healthy lifestyle. He doesn’t smoke and avoids fast foods. He stays away from red meat, and foods that are processed and are high in sodium. He tries to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and exercises routinely such as walking or bicycling.
