Women live longer than men all over the world. The main reason is the lack of timely diagnosis
According to statistics, out of 100 000 Ukrainian men 10 000 do not live to 35 years and 25 000 to 60. Some of them are killed in accidents, alcoholism and suicide, others die due to disease: about 1,000 people from diseases of the cardiovascular system, almost 200 from cancer, about 10 kills tuberculosis, and two – the impact of HIV.
According to the State statistics service for the year 2017, the average life expectancy for men in Ukraine – 62.8 years. For comparison, the average life expectancy of women in our country – 74.8 years.
In Ukraine, men live less than women for almost 12 years. And kill Ukrainians are mostly not heavy and harmful working conditions, and neglect their own health.
These surveys will help men to reduce the risks of early mortality.
One of the major causes of male mortality in Ukraine heart attacks and strokes. They kills almost four times more men than prostate cancer.
The main risk factors are: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, diabetes, type II diabetes, low fruit and vegetable intake, alcohol and Smoking.
Increases with age risk of high blood pressure, which could without warning lead to dangerous complications, including the occurrence of saccular protrusion of the artery wall (aneurysm) that threatens a possible hemorrhage, and often with a tragic outcome.
The level of cholesterol in the blood
High levels of cholesterol in the blood leads to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques consisting of fat-like substance adhering to the walls of blood vessels. Atherosclerosis is one of the most frequent diseases and causes of death of men for many years may develop asymptomatic, which greatly complicates its diagnosis.
Therefore, since 35 years, men are required every 5 years to take a blood test that determines the level of cholesterol.
The risk of cancer
The most common type of cancer in men is prostate cancer (1 out of 7 men), on second place is colon cancer (1 of 10), followed by lung cancer (1 of 13) and fourth in this terrible list – skin cancer (1 of 14).
One of the most common and aggressive types of cancer. More often diagnosed in men over the age of 65 years.
