Health concerns for men

In general, men suffer from more chronic conditions and have lower life expectancy than women. This can be attributed to differences in health related beliefs and social behaviours where men are less likely to engage in behaviours linked to health and longevity.

It is not uncommon to find that many men smoke, drink alcohol in excess, lack exercise, have poor diets, suffer from work-related stress, depression and drug addiction that is detrimental to their wellbeing.

Men rarely discuss their concerns with their partners or close family members and their health concerns can range from insomnia, diabetes, heart disease to sexual dysfunction.
