Heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol are among the most common men’s health issues.
- Heart disease – High cholesterol, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes and excess weight are among the risk factors that can cause heart disease, which involves damage to the arteries.
- High blood pressure – Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure doesn’t have specific symptoms but causes other problems, such as heart attack, stroke and kidney disease.
- Diabetes – Type 2 Diabetes, the most common type, causes your cells to incorrectly process the food your body breaks down, leaving you with high blood sugar.
- High cholesterol – High levels of bad cholesterol in your blood forms plaque that builds up in the walls of your arteries, which narrows the opening for blood to flow. Over time, this can cause heart attack or stroke.
