Internist Dr Avidon Appel, who diagnoses and treats diseases & illnesses in adult patients, discussed men’s general health. He notes they are less likely to seek help without spousal pressure, they shrug off any issues they may be experiencing and unfortunately, unlike their cars, they don’t come with a ‘check your engine list!’ We discussed the increasing numbers of cancer and other diseases we think of as age-onset, and he reminds us that a symptom such as ED could be a sign of cardiovascular or endocrine disease. He worries about our plastic exposure and recommends glass and metal over single-use  containers.  He advises hydration, exercise and proper sleep as the best routine for maintaining health and tells us, if something doesn’t feel right and it doesn’t get better fast, see a doctor. He asks men – or their partners – to take time to write down questions and concerns before a doctor’s visit – for a general ‘check list’ he also recommends visiting the CDC website.

Dr. Appel is also the Founder and President of Iron Mountain Men’s Health
