Men's Health Q & A

Why should a man visit a primary care physician?

You may feel “just fine,” but many underlying conditions have no outward symptoms, including high blood pressure and the early stages of Type 2 diabetes. By monitoring your health on a regular basis, Dr. Wang or Dr. Duke can give you the necessary care to prevent major health crises. If you have a non-life-threatening, but urgent illness or injury, you can get immediate urgent care, too.

What are ways to manage erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is diagnosed when you’re unable to attain or sustain an erection hard enough for sexual intercourse. Occasional instances of ED are common, but a persistent problem can be a symptom of other health problems.

If you come to AllCare Family Medicine and Urgent Care of Columbia, the doctor checks for any underlying conditions, such as heart disease or sleep apnea, and treats you for any of those concerns.

The doctor also checks your testosterone levels and offers hormone therapy if necessary. You may also qualify for oral medications, such as sildenafil and tadalafil. These are usually taken before sexual activity and last several hours, but there are a variety of dosages and options.

What is low testosterone?

Testosterone is the major male hormone responsible for a man’s muscle strength and mass, fat distribution, sex drive, and red blood cell production. Symptoms of low testosterone include:

  • Muscle loss
  • Poor sex drive and performance
  • Sagging energy levels
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Moodiness

Men tend to lose testosterone as they age, but sometimes the decline in the hormone is extreme or abnormal. At AllCare Family Medicine and Urgent Care of Columbia, the doctors offer testosterone therapy to restore your levels and improve your overall well-being.

How can premature ejaculation be treated?

Premature ejaculation is the condition when a man ejaculates sooner than he or his partner would like during sexual intercourse. About one in three male adults have problems with premature ejaculation. The doctors at AllCare Family Medicine and Urgent Care of Columbia help with psychological, behavioral, and drug therapies. Don’t be embarrassed. Raise your concerns about premature ejaculation with the doctors, because treatment is quite successful for the majority of men.
