Men’s Health Month is an annual observance focused on raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

This month, a primary aim at health fairs and other health education and outreach activities across the country is to encourage males and their families to take control of health issues with the proper screenings and care.

Did you know that men, on average, die almost five years earlier than women? Part of the reason is that men are more reluctant to go to the doctor, according to menshealthmonth.org.  In fact, studies show that women go to the doctor twice as much as men. Additionally, Men’s Health Network notes that certain conditions are more prevalent in men, which patients and their doctors should keep an eye on through regular appointments.

“When you look at the top 10 leading causes of death and stratify by gender, men lead in 9 of the 10 categories,” says Salvatore J. Giorgianni Jr., PharmD, a senior science adviser to Men’s Health Network (MHN). “Even before the difficult scenario of COVID-19, men’s suicide rates were four times higher than women’s.  The CDC believes a large reason for this is the increase in substance abuse across the board.  Even more difficult to take is that the shift has moved from older men to middle-aged men. There is a tremendous fear among men’s health experts that this will be exacerbated for quite some time. There are too many men dying from conditions that are manageable but by and large preventable.”

Steps for prevention:
 
  • Get Regular Checkups
  • Quit Smoking
  • Seek Mental and Physical Health Support When You Need It
  • Eat Healthy and Stay Active

In September, Evexia would like to draw attention to the significance of Men’s Health by heightening awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among males of all ages.

Recommended Conventional Testing:

Evexia Complete Male Hormone Profile

The Evexia Diagnostics Complete Male Hormone Profile provides a thorough evaluation of hormone levels associated with overall health and aging, along with indicators that may reveal contributing factors of a hormone imbalance. This panel is recommended for men 40 years of age or old, or for younger men with risk factors like being overweight and obese. This panel assesses the hormones 17-hydroxypregnenolone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone (both total and bioavailable), as well as stress markers (DHEA-S and cortisol) and other makers (sex hormone-bonding globulin [SHBG], and dihydrotestosterone)...


Evexia Comprehensive Wellness Panel

The Evexia Diagnostics Comprehensive Wellness Panel continues to extend the scope of the Complete Wellness option by including numerous markers related to nutrient status. This panel also incorporates homocysteine (which can be an indicator of vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6 deficiency), some hormone biomarkers (cortisol, estradiol, total testosterone, and bioavailable testosterone), and screens for gluten sensitivity via deaminated gliadin antibodies IgA and IgG. Additionally, this panel contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, which are significant indicators of anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory balance, as well as the nutrient Coenzyme Q10. Recent studies show that Co-Q10 supplements can significantly increase HDL-C and ApoA1 levels, even in people taking statins, and may help reduce the risk for CVD. Co-Q10 supplementation also decreases levels of inflammatory biomarkers shown to be risk factors for CVD, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive Protein.


Evexia Premier Wellness Panel

The Evexia Diagnostics Premier Wellness Panel is the pinnacle in our stable of wellness offerings. This panel includes everything provided by the Comprehensive Wellness option and measures serum lipids via NMR LipoProfile (see below for details), vitamin D, and select biomarkers such as glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD), lipid-associated sialic acid (LASA), matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), glutathione, and retinol-binding Protein.


Evexia Basic Cardiovascular Panel

The Evexia Basic Cardiovascular Panel is the first-line test to consider for assessing cardiovascular health. It measures the lipid profile via NMR, magnesium, and apolipoprotein assessment, as well as the CBC and comprehensive metabolic panel. This panel reports on health markers that indicate kidney and liver function, blood glucose regulation (via assessment of insulin, blood glucose, and hemoglobin A1c), and inflammation.

Included in this panel is the NMR LipoProfile Test. This test consists of the traditional lipid panel markers such as LDL-C, HDL-C, triglycerides, and total cholesterol. The lipid profile can help determine an individual's risk of heart disease and to guide decisions about what treatment may be best if there is borderline or high risk.


Evexia Complete Cardiovascular Panel

The Evexia Complete Cardiovascular Panel is the next step up from the Basic Cardiovascular option and includes everything that it provides. This panel goes further by assessing gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT), which can be increased by oxidative stress, liver/gallbladder conditions, and uric acid, and, when abnormal, can also be an indication of oxidative stress as well as gout. This panel reports on health markers that indicate kidney and liver function, blood glucose regulation (via assessment of insulin, blood glucose, and hemoglobin A1c), and inflammation. This panel also incorporates a complete urinalysis, as well as vitamin D. Vitamin D has received widespread attention for its potential role in preventing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus.


Evexia Comprehensive Cardiovascular Panel

The Evexia Comprehensive Cardiovascular Panel is ideally suited for individuals with known inflammatory conditions, including metabolic syndrome, which places them at higher risk of multiple chronic conditions, including diabetes, coronary heart disease, and cancer, as well as stroke. This panel reports on health markers that indicate kidney and liver function, blood glucose regulation (via assessment of insulin, blood glucose, and hemoglobin A1c), and inflammation. This panel also incorporates a complete urinalysis, as well as vitamin D. Vitamin D has received widespread attention for its potential role in preventing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

The Comprehensive Cardiovascular Panel goes beyond the Evexia Complete Cardiovascular option by adding biomarkers like lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 Activity (PLAC®) and oxidized low-density lipoprotein (OxLDL), that are specific to assessing on-going plaquing in the blood vessel walls. This panel also contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, which are significant indicators of anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory balance, as well as the nutrient Coenzyme Q10. Recent studies show that Co-Q10 supplements can significantly increase HDL-C and ApoA1 levels, even in people taking statins, and may help reduce the risk for CVD. Co-Q10 supplementation also decreases levels of inflammatory biomarkers shown to be risk factors for CVD, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive Protein. Troponin I is also included in this panel and is the most commonly ordered and most specific of the cardiac markers. This biomarker is elevated (positive) within a few hours of heart damage and remains elevated for up to two weeks. Rising levels in a series of troponin tests performed over several hours can help diagnose a heart attack.


Evexia Premier Cardiovascular Panel

The Evexia Premier Cardiovascular Panel is the most extensive cardiovascular panel offered by Evexia Diagnostics and includes everything provided in the Comprehensive Cardiovascular option. This panel also incorporates B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP), Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), Myeloperoxidase (MPO), and Trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO).
