To have a more accurate knowledge we invite the studio to an expert in the area, Bruno de Castro Nagib Salomão, President of the Hominem Clinic male health medical clinic specializing in male sexual and hormonal dysfunctions and therefore deals exclusively with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and changes hormones (andropause) being today a reference in this segment.
Rubén Torrego made a point of expanding the topic to not simply dysfunction problems, doubts exist far beyond problems, the reality is that most men of all ages do not really know how their bodies work, there are many questions and Bruno embraced the theme, as soon as we go there, we will talk about the different ages, needs and possible consequences of not taking action at the right time.
Bruno added that Many of the patients looking for clinics had already consulted a large list of professionals, who obviously already had some type of health problem and could not find an adequate solution to the problem presented, he emphasizes that the treatments are effective in men of all ages, that statistics show positive results in most cases, but that if they were detected in time they could have avoided having any kind of health problem regardless of age or medical condition.
The oldest people in the world are clear about one thing: preventing aging is indeed impossible. Whether you are a man or a woman, the goal is to embrace aging and take steps throughout your life to stay on top both physically and mentally. Men have a lot to gain from adopting healthy habits as they age.
From spikes and falls in sexual function to baldness and weight gain, here’s what men should pay attention to as they travel to their golden years:
Adolescence is a period of tremendous growth and development, both physically and mentally. Most of the growth occurs during adolescence, but some men can continue to grow and develop until they are 20 years old. “Different men have different growth rates, depending on their genetics and other factors,” “Some children may be alarmed if pubic hair arrives sooner or later and may need to hear that children go through puberty at different rates.”
What to do: Communication and education are undoubtedly basic, especially during adolescence, if you are a parent, talk to your children and see if they are comfortable in their bodies and with the changes that are going on.
From 20 years
Between college exams, job demands and an active social calendar, many men have a hard time maintaining healthy habits during their 20s. Instead of following a healthy diet and adopting a fixed exercise regime, you can afford to go out late at night, eat fatty foods and lots of beer. To add insult to injury, the brain does not reach full maturity until the early 20s, and this means that men in this age group are more likely to engage in risky behaviors, such as drinking and driving.
Even within this age group it is very important to talk to your doctor about how to start managing your weight, heart health and stress precisely when you are young is the best age to start and visit the doctor and talk about all possible questions, it is important to adopt healthy habits when young and take them with you for the rest of your life. Take steps to prevent substance abuse, accidents and sexually transmitted diseases that may have long-lasting effects and make appropriate screenings with your doctor. You can also establish a baseline for markers like blood pressure, diabetes and thyroid disease for example, but there are many reasons why you need to visit your doctor, the body speaks importantly listening to you in time.
From 30 years
Your doctor will be more concerned with your cardiovascular risk factors; now is the time to make lifestyle choices to prepare for healthy middle age.
Many people are creating families and dealing with busy careers in their 30s. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you feel overwhelmed with stress; he can refer you to a therapist or prescribe medication.
Practicing self-care is essential during the 30’s, especially when it comes to stress. It is not uncommon for men in this age group to light the candle at both ends, in an attempt to keep up with the demands of work and family, unfortunately, this strategy can backfire. Not only do you suffer the repercussions of very little sleep, but your body can undergo changes that make taking care of yourself even more important.
Even so, 30’s is a peak period in the life of man precisely for that reason they can ignore many warnings that if they are attended to, they will have a healthy life, commit to taking care of yourself. Eat a healthy diet, sleep seven to nine hours and exercise four to five times a week. Then, screen for diseases like diabetes, thyroid disease and cardiovascular risk factors (including cholesterol levels and blood pressure).
From 40 years
“In your 30s and 40s, your metabolism slows down”, “So even if you are eating the same amount of food, you will probably gain more weight”.
Cardiovascular risk factors are now more important than ever to check blood pressure, cholesterol, among others, if your doctor thinks your risk is increased, he can start screening at 40 or 45 years old. Precisely in this age group is when the moment when erectile dysfunction can begin to appear. Do not forget to tell your doctor, as early erectile dysfunction is associated with an increased risk of heart problems. It can be treated and there is no reason to be ashamed.
The stress of a sedentary lifestyle and lack of interest can bring serious problems to the health of men at this age, the lack of libido can start to appear because they are more concentrated in their professional careers or in basically economic and not physical issues.
From 50 and 60 years
After the age of 50, testosterone levels begin to drop, which causes changes in fat distribution. You may notice an increase in weight around the belly, less hair on the head and more hair on the nose and ears. The levels of estrogen and estradiol can increase at the same time, causing changes in breast tissue and loss of muscle mass. You may also experience declines in desire and sexual function. When you are aware of these changes, it is less alarming when they happen.
If you are alarmed by changes in sexual function, seek help from a doctor. Erectile dysfunction is more common after age 60, tell your doctor if you have a problem; there are a variety of treatments available for sure whatever your situation can be treated think that visiting your doctor is no longer an option to become a habit so you can enjoy a healthy sex life.
In this age group, their risk factors for disease – especially heart disease and cancer – continue to increase. Assess your weight and ask about weight control methods, be screened for diabetes and continue to check your blood pressure and cholesterol, ask your doctor about screening for prostate cancer, do colon cancer screening, regardless of your family history, if you are at medium risk, have your first colonoscopy at age 50 and repeat every 10 years, if you smoke or smoke, have lung cancer screening (and do your best to quit) talk to your doctor medical lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among men (and women).
Focus on brain and heart health, then go back to basics: take steps to prevent falls and accidents in your home and surroundings, check your eyes for the right prescription glasses, and exercise to maintain your strength and balance. Also, continue screening tests.
From 70 years
Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue to screen for colon and prostate cancer.
If you are interested, talk to your doctor about sexuality and how to maintain intimacy during the aging process, no doubt if you have maintained a healthy life during your life the problems of erectile dysfunction, lack of libido, premature ejaculation or lack of ejaculation can be successfully treated.
If you already have a list of your medical prescriptions, talk to your doctor about this as well as the doses, or take the vials themselves, with each visit if necessary. This will help your doctor to assess any drug interactions or side effects.
Make sure your doctor is assessing your mental health; the elderly is especially prone to depression.
Conclusion: staying well in old age is a balancing act. Eat a clean diet, exercise and enjoy an active social and sexual life. Then avoid activities that increase your risk of developing certain illnesses. These things together can help to negate many of the changes that happen with age.
