Medical care can slip past us. Before we know it we’re managing a dozen health conditions and attempting to ‘make do’.
How much better would your life be if your symptoms were more manageable? How much more could you accomplish with less aches and pains? Your family doctor is an experienced professional who can direct you to the resources you need to thrive, not survive. It could be a Botox treatment to help you finally get that sleep you need. It could even be a trip to the alcohol detox center to clear your head.
Whatever you need, the best family doctor can provide. The average American adult today is managing at least one form of chronic pain…let’s see what can be done for you.
It’s helpful to know the most common diseases in the United States and your current risk factor. According to ongoing medical studies, the deadliest conditions include Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and alcoholism. Obesity is particularly insidious because it exposes you to several risk factors, such as heart disease or stroke. Should you suspect any of these to be encroaching on your life, it’s imperative you visit a family doctor. They can provide you a diagnosis that sets you on the path to recovery.
Substance abuse is a tricky problem with no single answer. That’s because it’s a symptom, not a cause. The year 2015 saw over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 struggling through a substance use disorder — four out of five heroin users start out misusing prescription painkillers. Alcoholism is frequently attributed to genetics and peer pressure, irregardless of age group. Whether you use drugs to cope with trauma or manage chronic pain, there are solutions that can help.
Botox is another resource you can use to manage a chronic issue. A frequent contributor to sleep apnea, for example, is a lack of airflow in your nose and throat. This can be eased with the aid of a Botox procedure that opens up your nasal passages and allows you to breathe easier at night. Insomnia and sleep apnea impact the lives of millions of hardworking Americans, making even a nap feel like an impossible feat. Botox treatment can, of course, also extend to other areas of the body.
Weight loss is a major way you can cut into one of America’s chronic health issues. It’s difficult to commit to a diet, though, much less keep the weight off in the long-term. Let a doctor craft a medically supervised weight loss plan designed around your lifestyle and limitations. They’ll make sure you’re still eating well and getting the right amount of exercise each week. You can couple this treatment with testosterone treatment to make sure you’re getting the full range of benefits.
Have you faced acute withdrawal symptoms? Are you suspecting your low energy could be due to a lack of testosterone? Any concerns and questions you have should be taken to a doctor as soon as possible. They will provide you with years’ worth of expertise to diagnose you and start a plan that will improve your quality of life. A recent study found alcohol addiction patients receive treatment eight years after they developed the condition. As many as 90% of men with low testosterone don’t ever receive treatment.
It’s not just you. Take your symptoms and frustrations to a family doctor and see how you can start living better this year.
