Pre-Hypertension Still Raises Heart Risk in Men
Pre-hypertensive middle-aged men may have more to worry about than developing full-blown high blood pressure. They also are at an increased risk for a heart arrhythmia.
Maladies of Men Only
Men and women have much in common. But let's face it: there are some obvious differences between the sexes, especially when it comes to sexual health.
How Reliable a Link?
Though men who have vascular erectile dysfunction appear to be at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, that doesn't mean ED alone should be considered a risk factor.
Testosterone Wards Off Heart Problems
Testosterone does more than just protect muscle strength and sexual health. In fact, naturally high levels of testosterone may be beneficial to the heart in older men.
Weekly Exercise Cuts Men's Heart Risks
A key to reducing the risk of heart attacks in men may be engaging in vigorous exercise for at least three hours a week. A new study suggests that reduces their heart attack risk by 22 percent.
The Low Down on Down Low Testosterone
By the age of 35, men's testosterone levels begin to drop by one or two percent each year. By the age of 50, 30% of men are already below the normal testosterone range and that number increases as years advance.
Fatty Heart is Bad News
When it comes to your body, most types of fat have negative implications. Fat around the heart is no different. It may cause heart disease even in healthy individuals, especially in men.
Belly Fat Predicts Heart Disease
Not all fat is created equal, especially when it comes to men with excessive weight around the middle. Some with added belly fat may be at an increased risk of developing heart disease and other serious health problems.
Quicker Heart Treatment for Married Men
Marriage comes with a number of benefits. One of the most important might be an edge when it comes to health. Married men have a clear advantage in getting quick medical treatment for a heart attack.
Exercise More to Combat Sleep Disorders and Diabetes
Men with obstructive sleep apnea, diabetes or high blood pressure can greatly improve their survival rate by increasing their amount of exercise. Conversely, poor fitness habits increased the death rate by as much as 75 percent.
