Let’s Talk About Men’s Health!

Do you remember back in May when we talked about women’s health? (If you’d like to revisit that post, CLICK HERE!)

Well, now it’s time for the men! Did you know that June 21st-27th is Men’s Health Week? And while I’m well-aware that there are very few men who read this blog, I do know that there are lots of women reading this right now who are interested in their husband’s health. (And are probably the ones “in charge” of their husband’s health, too!)

????????????

About 2 months ago, my husband FINALLY went to his primary care physician for a very-much-overdue physical. We discovered that his triglycerides were dangerously high, and immediately went on a low-carb low-sugar diet, started him on fish oil tablets and made sure he took his prescription.

Now, I LOVE my husband more than I can say. But he would not have done half of the above if I hadn’t put my foot down and initiated the process. (Love you, babe. But you know it’s true.) 

In fact…

So when I was shared this info-graphic on MEN’S health by Oscar Insurance, I showed it to him first. And if there’s a man in your life that you care for, maybe you should do the same! Check it out…

You know what’s crazy? My hubby has had three skin cancers since we’ve been married. He’s his dermatologist’s youngest patient. I had no idea of that last fact in the infographic: Men are twice as likely to die of melanoma (skin cancer) than women. But I believe every word. He’s very proactive with his dermatological care because of that. And now he has a tool to be more health-conscious overall! That makes for a happy wife!

Will you share this information with the special men in your life? Please do!

Due to the amount of comments from all of my wonderful readers, it is not always possible for me to respond to each one. However, I absolutely do read them all, and if you’d like to address something specific, or have a question for me, please don’t hesitate to email me at Kristen@theroadtodomestication.com. I will respond to your email as soon as possible! Thank you for visiting the blog!

  1. Thanks for a great post about men’s health! We do, as wives, have to help our men to take better care of themselves, don’t we.

    The roadmap you shared is helpful, and the post is as well.

    I found you on the Sharing What Mamma Told Me link up today. Glad to find your blog and your Pinterest site.
    Blessings,
