Men's Health Q&A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health refers to the specific needs of male adults when it comes to health and wellness. There are some diseases that solely affect men, affect them primarily, or affect them differently from women.


Many men’s health issues are preventable with a healthy lifestyle. To reduce your disease risk, you should:

  • Maintain a healthy diet
  • Be physically active
  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid excess alcohol consumption
  • Avoid risky choices
  • Visit for annual physical exams and other preventive services, like health screenings Lago Mar Medical Clinic offers several services for men to improve upon their health and avoid chronic illness or offset the results of aging on the body. 

Which services are available for men’s health?

Your Lago Mar Medical Clinic provider can recommend the services you need based on the results of your initial intake visit. You should be sure to report any unusual symptoms as these could point your provider in the direction of a suitable treatment. Your men’s health options include:

IV therapy

Several forms of IV nutrient therapy are available for men, including the glutathione drip. Glutathione is a powerful natural antioxidant that boosts metabolism, energy, and overall cell health. 

Testosterone shots

Testosterone shots are injections to treat a hormone imbalance that happens in some aging men called low testosterone. Low testosterone may cause sexual dysfunction, low energy, emotional distress, and other complex symptoms.


An annual physical lets your provider see how you’re doing health-wise. They may give recommendations for healthy lifestyle improvements after taking measurements and running simple tests. You can also get a sports physical to make sure you’re in good shape to participate in your physical activity of choice. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) services

PRP is a substance full of growth factors that come from your blood. PRP injections can help treat hair loss in some men. The P-Shot® or Priapus Shot®, a specific PRP injection, can treat erectile dysfunction and other sexual wellness concerns in men. 

Chronic disease management

Men are prone to lifestyle-related chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Your provider works with you to manage them with lifestyle alterations, medications, and support. 

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing. For men’s sexual health, it can treat complications like erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.
