Annual physicals don’t end with your childhood –– rather, they should continue well into your adult life. Not only can they catch medical conditions through routine health screenings, but they can establish patterns of symptoms that might otherwise be missed without yearly check-ups. Plus, our Men’s healthcare services go beyond just prevention! Men face unique healthcare challenges, and often aren’t comfortable in the medical setting. Generations can help. Whether you’re in a high stress job, a new or expectant father, or just want to feel more like you did when you were younger, Generations wants to help you be the best you can be. We treat the chronic conditions and longevity issues men face as they age, and we can also help you with the decisions men have to make to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives. When you’re looking for reliable men’s healthcare in Cary, NC, look no further than the comprehensive medical teams at Generations Family Practice.
Annual physicals and many screenings should be completed every year. Completing a screening at Generations Family Practice, such as a hypertension, prostate, or colon cancer screening, can help us identify several potential medical conditions and resolve them proactively at our facility in Cary:
- Diabetes. Diabetes affects millions of people in the United States, and is considered to be a metabolic disorder. This medical condition means that your pancreas is not providing enough insulin to properly digest food and glucose, throwing off your body’s sugar levels. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that requires those who are affected to take insulin daily, while type 2 diabetes typically affects patients who are obese or have a family history of diabetes. Generations addresses Diabetes with a lifestyle first approach, minimizing your medication cost while providing the energy busy men need to feel and do their best!
- Blood pressure. Doctors can measure the force that is used to carry blood through your blood vessels, arteries and heart. Good blood pressure is a reading of 120/80, whereas high blood pressure is a reading of 140/90. High blood pressure may lead to strokes, heart failure and/or kidney disease, and can also frequently be resolved through diet and exercise!
- Cholesterol. Cholesterol refers to fat within your blood. When cholesterol accumulates in your arteries, it can harden them, restricting blood flow and causing heart issues, such as blood clots, heart attacks and strokes. Our providers will help you sift through the many treatment options to find the solution that best supports you and those you care for!
- Immunizations. You can keep your health in check by getting recommended immunizations, such as annual flu shots, pneumococcal, and shingles vaccines at Generations Family Practice.
