Default Men's health

With all the health issues that have been talked about on here lately, it got me to thinking. What all tests / procedures should we be taking as we get older, and at what age should we do them.

I am 51 and a little over weight. I drink more than I should and don't exercise enough. I went to the Dr. yesterday and got my yearly check up. Blood pressure was good. Prostate was good. I still don't know why we cant find a better way to check that with modern medicine. I'm getting blood work and a colonoscopy done next week. What else do I need to be getting done? All you old farts share your wisdom.

Get a stress test on a treadmill, will help detect any heart issues.

I disagree with the stress test unless you run marathons. I don't want to create a problem where one didn't exist before.
My dr. told me he does know of several people that had heart attacks while doing a stress test.

Isn't that a perfect example of why people should be doing stress tests? Had those people done them years prior, they could have seen the heart attack coming, right?

Yep!

Saying that, my doctor has moved from stress tests to CT / Heart Scans. Cheap (less than 150) and good way to determine calcium build up. I am in relatively good shape, but have family history of heart disease, so it's something he has had me check twice since turning 50 (put me on statin after first test as preventative).

Additionally, get

1) a full fledge annual physical to get a baseline on you
2) lose some weight and exercise

I'm 59 with a broken body- three major orthopedic surgeries (both shoulders, ankle) three neck back surgeries (2 level neck fusion, 2 lower back surgeries) . My two cents-

Semi annual blood-CBC, metabolic panel, lipids, A1C, PSA, EKG etc. Maintain records for seeing trends.

Calcium screen and stress test. The stress test isn't that challenging, it basically ramps up from a slow walk to a very brief fast run and it doesn't last long. If you're not in good enough shape to go thru a stress test, you need to really examine your lifestyle.

Colonoscopy.

Blood pressure is huge.

Get an assessment of your body weight-fat %.

Work out, walk if nothing else. Past 50, you lose muscle mass like crazy. lift light. But stay active.

Good luck.

And, either hit the gym 3 times per week for cardio on a bike or treadmill and then go thru the weight machines but don't overdo it. Work on core for sure.

Take care of your feet. Wear the right shoes.

I've seen a whole bunch of 50 year old ranchers have foot surgery from wearing pointy toe boots their whole life.

Once you start having foot problems, they rarely stop.

Movement is the key IMO - I have run for 42 years - eat what I want and am very active at age 69. For me the secret has been to have an exercise partner - why? because you then become accountable. Many a morning I did not want to get up at 5 am and go run at 6 am - especially when it is 25 degrees and windy! But when you know someone is waiting and counting on you you get up and go.

I do not always eat perfectly but the running off sets that. I get a full exam each year - it is a lifestyle and IMO goes way beyond just living longer - it is about living longer while feeling good while you live

I guess. Get on the treadmill and jog. Have your massive heart attack and die right there. Then they can say" well, he was going to die from a heart attack in a few years anyway". LOL

I do understand. My mother went in for her stress test. She had a heart attack while she was there. Did a week in the hospital for what should have been a simple procedure.
Her blood pressure got so high that some of the blood vessel in her eyes burst.

Educate yourself on diet and exercise and make a lifestyle change. You’ll likely spend a lot less time on medication and a lot less money on Doctors.

All of the other suggestions are good and necessary but this is the only thing that you can control and it will make a difference.

this!

you and i are exact same age! im 51 today. going in for a colonoscopy consultation at 10:30 (great birthday present, right?) i have blood work done at least yearly, im on a statin for cholesterol. a few years ago, i was on a BP med. decided to eat better-- pretty much eliminated fried food and cokes,
i TRY to exercise on a stairmaster and use weights at least 3 times a week... it has really made me feel overall much better. i dropped about 10 lbs and dr. took me off of BP meds.-- TRY to cut out as much sugar as you can also.
its hard though.

I think the best thing I ever did was start riding a bike about 6 years ago to get in shape for Elk hunting. I'm 63 and went from 201 to 168 right now and I take 0 meds of any kind other than a allergy pill. I pretty much watch my card intake and to keep my weight down and ride several miles per week or on my trainer in the house.

Following this for advice. I’m 51 and can’t remember the last time I went to see a doctor. Well except for the shoulder surgery I’m going through now. I know I need to have everything checked. I just put it off because I feel fine. I don’t take any medication at all.

I found out I was diabetic and had prostate cancer at 57. I hadn't been to a dr unless I was sick and had likely had both prior to when discovered. The age to start annuals used to be 50 but I think 45 is now recommended. I recommend to my 43 yr old son to start now due to family history.

Two things I would add to the wealth of advice already given:

Stretch, stretch some more and then consider yoga

Secondly, get an Upper Endoscopy especially if you suffer from heart burn. Best advice of all if you do both the Colonoscopy and the Upper Endoscopy the same day make sure you get the Endoscopy done first or you may have a bad taste in your mouth

Doing all the tests to find health problems is good.

Doing everything you can to be healthy and prevent health problems by eating only healthy stuff and exercising regularly is even better.

Do both.

Many great suggestions above.

I'll add - get the shingles vaccine.

As Shane stated, exercise regularly even if that's just walking or staying active by getting up and moving your body. Also, I try to focus more on exercise that targets legs, lungs, balance, and flexibility.

Blood test is only part of prostate exam. My blood work came back OK. Psa was 2.0 but finger sweep felt a hard spot. Biopsy showed .5 % cancer in one of 12 samples. Prostate cancer at 50 years old. Radiation implants and I've been cancer free for 19 years.

Step 1:
Know your blood type.

Step 2:
Eat accordingly to your blood type.

Step 3:
Drink fluids accordingly to your blood type.

Step 4: Exercise regularly. The fountain of youth comes from (within your body) the chemicals produced by the stressing and exercise of the major muscle groups.

Just this week a friend I had noticed several years ago
and been told directly, has major inflammation. After three years of me asking his blood type, he finally found out, because he was tired of hurting all the time. No surprise, surprise… he is O Positive. It ONLY took three years of me asking periodically and him to get to a point of persistent pain for him to realize…. Wheat and gluten aint his friend.

He picked up and started reading the book by Dr DAdamo Eat Right 4 Your Type.

He has a good chance of recovery being his wife is O Positive too and just recently lost a bunch of weight. She has gone from fatty to smoke wagon. Ive been hoping to help direct him from inflammed fatty to stud. Progress has been made in that direction. Yee Haw.

Its a lifestyle not just a diet.

First I’ve heard of blood type related diet…interesting

Have them check for high iron when they are doing blood work. By the time my FIL found out he already had stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver.

There is allot of good advice here and some I need to investigate myself. I can’t stress enough for checkups and follow up if needed. Speaking from personal experiences due to early detection of a rare form of cancer from two plus years ago I am still here enjoying my Family and by the grace of God.

My new pcp I visited recently mentioned the below starting at age 50
1. Check psa
2 colonoscopy for average risk
He mentioned if a parent or sibling had colon cancer before age of 60 then they recommend starting at age 40

I had a buddy that had perfect numbers. Gym three times a week, ran pumped iron, all numbers were great. Had a heart attack the following week. He survived it.
Start intermittent fasting, exercise, eat properly, and most importantly have your salvation nailed down.
Almost forgot the colonoscopy. I have my next one this year at 67. Been clear for all pre ious ones.

Regular checkup at least every year and a colonoscopy when the Doc tells you to do it. Usually at 50 and every 10 years and maybe sooner depending on what they find.

Eat right, exercise when you can and drink plenty of Bourbon! LOL Just kidding on the Bourbon.

If you are young, 40 and under, start realizing what you do in your younger years will greatly affect your body after 60 if not earlier!

Is it normal to get both a heart Ultrasound and CT scan done within a week of each other? It seems like one would cancel the other out.

No problem at all. Two totally different things. In a nutshell, ultrasound will give an idea of how well your heart is pumping and identify any valve issues. CT takes detailed 3D pictures.
