Family Wellness Q & A

What are the most common family wellness problems?

Family wellness is a broad category, but even in such a big group of patients, certain things tend to be more common. Some of the most common family wellness problems include:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Common colds
  • Women’s health concerns
  • Men’s health concerns

No matter what kind of condition or concern you have, M Family Care is here for you.

What is hypertension?

Hypertension is commonly called high blood pressure. About one in three adults has hypertension in the U.S. today, and the condition is on the rise in children, too. Hypertension can be a silent killer because it rarely has any signs.

When you come to M Family Care for annual exams or sick visits, your care provider checks your blood pressure and compares it to your past readings. Fortunately, you can often prevent hypertension through a healthy diet and good lifestyle choices. If you have hypertension, your M Family Care provider gives you lifestyle support and other treatments if you need them.

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition caused by too-high blood sugar. Untreated diabetes could lead to heart disease, stroke, serious eye problems, nerve damage, and other major health issues.

In type 1 diabetes, most sufferers are born with the disease or develop it when very young. Type 1 diabetes can’t be prevented, and you have to take insulin to be healthy.

Type 2 diabetes is almost always preventable through healthy diet, exercise, and careful health monitoring. It’s sometimes treatable with just lifestyle changes, but your M Family Care provider can also prescribe medication if you need it.

What are the most common women’s health concerns?

Health concerns particular to women include menopause, reproductive system problems like endometriosis, and birth control. Women are also more vulnerable to disease than men. Regular health monitoring is crucial for all women, and your M Family Care provider offers women’s wellness exams to help you stay healthy.

What are the most common men’s health concerns?

Just like women, men can have serious health issues unique to them. Some of the most common health concerns for men include hormone imbalance (low testosterone), prostate disease, and erectile dysfunction. All men should have regular men’s wellness visits to monitor health and get help with preventive care.
