November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. This means we are trying to raise awareness about diabetes, as well as encourage patients to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Many cases of diabetes and its complications can be prevented by a nutritious diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy body weight and avoiding tobacco use.
Men's Health is a field of medicine that emphasizes conditions specific to men. This can include prostate and urinary issues, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, penile curvature (Peyronie’s disease), infertility, and hormone and lifestyle issues.
Our blog post “10 Questions You Are Too Embarrassed to Ask Your Urologist” was so popular that the providers at Utah Men’s Health decided to answer several more questions for our readers!
In honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, the providers at Utah Men’s Health are dedicating today’s blog post to patients and caregivers who have experienced a prostate cancer diagnosis. Erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence are, unfortunately, two very common side effects after prostate cancer treatment. These issues can greatly affect your quality of life. Almost all men will report erectile dysfunction and urinary leakage after the first few months following prostate cancer surgery. The good news is many men will see an improvement after the first year, and there are treatment options to help.
At Utah Men’s Health we hope that there are no questions you are too embarrassed to ask us; but, for some people going to the doctor can feel a little overwhelming, especially when it concerns a private area! The providers at Utah Men’s Health have compiled a list of men’s sexual health questions that they find their patients are most hesitant to ask.
