While men and women are equal in many things such as intelligence, some distinct health issues tend to affect men more commonly. This is a situation that is often exacerbated by the culture of masculinity in Society that prevents men from getting the help that they need or looking after their health. However, as most of these issues are treatable, if not curable, it is vital that men seek help when they are suffering from one of the problems below. Read on to find out more.



Diabetes is common disorder among men, and it is caused by the body having an abnormal reaction to sugar or insulin in the body. Type 1 diabetes is usually present from childhood. However, type 2 is linked to a poor diet high in refined sugar as well as a high BMI.

Often the masculine traits of eating a hearty diet high in fatty red meat, convenience foods, and not being so body conscious can contribute to the risk factors involved here. Luckily, diabetes can be treated and managed with dietary changes and medication in some cases. Although, many men can see their symptoms go into remission through balancing their diet and exercising, as long as their doctor monitors it.

And diabetes is one of the health issues that truly is controllable. It is our choice what we eat and how we eat.

We are what we eat! Especially with our health issues!

Liver disease.

The risk of liver disease is much higher in men than it is in women, and this is due to a combination of genetic factors as well as the impact that the culture of masculinity can have on men’s alcohol consumption. After all, men are expected to drink in a certain way, either regularly or too excess, and this will have an adverse effect on liver health.


If you are concerned about your liver health, then it is essential to seek a screening for any issues as quickly as possible. In the meantime and to promote long-term liver health, cut down or eradicate drinking altogether and be sure to keep hydrated through the entire day.  


Heart disease. Yup, common health issues for men!
