The sad reality of aging is that even the healthiest, strongest men will experience a few health issues as they age. After the age of 50, you can expect a few health problems – and no, not every single one of these can be solved with a pill of generic Tadalafil – you know what we mean.
Here’s the list of smaller issues that men after the age of 50 are (almost) guaranteed to encounter:
- Even if you didn’t encounter acne throughout your teen years, there’s a good chance you’re going to suffer from it when you are older. The recent studies reveal some interesting data: the average male acne patient is nearly 40 years old. There are many causes for acne, starting from a bad diet (too much sugar) all the way to genetic predisposal.
- Pattern hair loss (also known as MPHL). This issue affects more than 65% of older men, according to the recent study. The less said about this one – the better.
- Periodontal (Gum) disease. More than 50% of middle-aged men suffer from this issue. To make sure you stay on the safer side: floss. This recent Japanese study suggests that men who don’t floss are 96% more likely to develop periodontal disease. Smokers also have a good chance (over 70%).
- In the UK, they call it “the winter vomiting bug”. You can catch it basically anywhere. Many infections resolve themselves quietly, but this one can lead to some serious trouble if you’re older.
- More than 75% of adult men are overweight or obese.
- Eye problems. Many males need glasses. Many suffer from nearsightedness and astigmatism. There’s also presbyopia, it’s related to aging and it sets in between the ages of 40 and 45.
For this list, it’s easier to just write down the top ten causes of death in men. Men, on average, have shorter life expectancies than women, due to their lives being more stressful, along with some other factors. Here are the top 10 causes of death in men.
- Heart Disease
- Accidental Injuries
- Lung Disease
- Kidney Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
Now that you know about the most prevalent issues, both minor and major, it’s your time to make some lifestyle adjustments and become proactive about your health.
