Supporting Men’s Health Awareness with Early Detection and Preventive Care

June is recognized as Men’s Health Month to raise awareness about the health issues that affect men. Men face unique health challenges and are often less likely than women to seek medical care. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), men die an average of five years earlier than women and have higher mortality rates for most leading causes of death, including heart disease, cancer, and unintentional injuries. Additionally, men are less likely to visit a doctor for regular check-ups and preventive care. By focusing on early detection and preventive measures, we can help bridge this gap and improve health outcomes for men.

At WLT Software, we are committed to supporting men’s health through our advanced technology solutions and strategic partnerships. We empower healthcare providers and administrators to promote early detection and preventive measures, ultimately improving health outcomes for men.

Common Preventable Illnesses in Men

Men are often at higher risk for certain preventable illnesses due to lifestyle factors and a tendency to delay seeking medical care. Some of the most common preventable illnesses in men include:

  • Cardiovascular Disease: Leading cause of death among men, often preventable through lifestyle changes and early detection of risk factors such as hypertension and high cholesterol.
  • Prostate Cancer: Early screening and regular check-ups can significantly improve outcomes.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: Preventable through diet, exercise, and regular monitoring of blood glucose levels.
  • Respiratory Diseases: Smoking cessation and early detection of lung diseases (COPD, asthma, lung cancer) can prevent severe outcomes.
  • Depression and Mental Health Issues: Often underdiagnosed in men, but early intervention and support can improve quality of life.

Read on to learn how WLT’s platforms and partnerships enable clients and members to utilize advanced resources that can help them identify and prevent health risks early.
