health HE CAN'T IGNORE IT IS YOUR GUY MAKING SERIOUS MISTAKES THAT ARE DAMAGING HIS HEALTH? 1 He hasn't been to the doctor in years WHY IS IT A PROBLEM? Ignoring symptoms can mean when he's finally diagnosed, things are much more difficult to treat. If he thinks he can self-diagnose by using Google, he's wrong. FIX IT Encourage him to regularly check his testicles, moles and urine for any unusual changes that occur. TV expert, Dr Christian Jessen says: 'Men are notoriously bad at not going for a check-up. Major health risks can be prevented with regular screenings, so they're vital.' WORDS: ROSIE ORGLES PHOTOGRAPH: GETTY IMAGES 2 He never cries or talks about feelings WHY IS IT A PROBLEM? Bottling his emotions might seem the manly thing to do but it can lead to long-term physical and mental health issues. FIX IT Look out for effects of stress, such as ulcers, headaches, restlessness and insomnia and as well as changes in his personality. Dr Jessen says: 'Never be afraid to seek advice about mental conditions such as depression.' 3 He's a smoker and drinks a couple of pints a day WHY IS IT A PROBLEM? Drinking, smoking and taking drugs are all extremely wearing on a body. He will suffer from a serious lack of vitamins and nutrients and is damaging to your man's physical and mental health, and appearance. Men are more likely than women to have an addiction and of people dependent on illegal drugs, 69% are male. 4 He always chooses a burger and chips over a salad WHY IS IT A PROBLEM? The high amounts of fat and salt that are in junk food can lead to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart problems. Being overweight costs the NHS more than £5billion a year. FIX IT He needs to make simple lifestyle changes, such as eat more healthily, get his five fruit and veg a day, and exercise. 'The quality of foods you eat plays a big part in your weight, and home cooking means you have total control of what goes in meals,' says Dr Jessen. 'You relinquish this sort of control when you buy ready-meals or junk food. They can be very misleading about their content and health benefits.' FIX IT Encourage your man to cut back - and eventually give up - on his smoking and excessive drinking. There are various aids to help him quit smoking, such as patches, gum, electronic cigarettes, and phone apps. 'Smoking is the greatest single cause of illness and premature death in the UK. Give up,' says Dr Jessen. 5 He's a total adrenaline junkie WHY IS IT A PROBLEM? Whether he gets a thrill from extreme sports or pushing himself through long days at work on insufficient sleep, high risk behaviours are stressful and damaging. FIX IT Help him find other ways to release tension. His body needs rest and shouldn't be put under more pressure just for a kick. 'Exercise is a fantastic way of getting endorphins pumping around your body, which makes you feel happier,' says Dr Jessen. 'Having a hobby - doing something other than work - is time out. "You" time is key.' E Exclusive | 99
