Healthy Habits For Men

 

Overdue for a service? Don't Wait until it is too late

Overdue for a service? Don't wait until it is too late.

If you take out suicide and reckless death - 5 men die every hour in Australia - from a disease that could have been prevented through early detection.

In 2009/10, just 43% of GP encounters were with men, and in that group which men's health specialists call "the unreachable" – those aged 25 - 34, one in four did not use any Medicare services at all.

Although men are getting much better at accessing health services today there is still a generation that thinks that to be male, you wait until an arm or a leg drops off before you go and get medical care.

So this year don't wait - make a DATE with your GP for a General Health Check.
