New National Survey Results Reveal Majority of Men Find It Easier to Care for Their Car Than for Their Personal Health
Date:6/13/2011

NEW YORK, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Almost 70 percent of men find it easier to care for their cars than for their personal health, according to findings from a new survey of 501 men ages 45-65.  The survey was commissioned by Men's Health Network and Abbott (NYSE: ABT).  In addition, more than 40 percent reported they would be more likely to address issues with their car than their health.  As a result, some men may be ignoring the symptoms of certain health conditions because they are reluctant to visit the doctor, the survey found.  

The survey is part of the "T-Talk Tune-Up," a national campaign launched today by Men's Health Network and Abbott to raise awareness of men's health issues.  Racing champion Terry Labonte and national men's health expert Harry Fisch, M.D., are leading the campaign, which coincides with Men's Health Awareness Month.

"For many men, tuning up our cars is easier than getting checkups for our health," said Labonte.  "With the help of my wife, Kim, I began to think about my body and my health in the same way I think about the care of my cars.  As a result, I scheduled a doctor's appointment and a series of tests to help stay on top of my health."  

The survey also found that 28 percent of men do not visit the doctor regularly, and over 40 percent of their significant others surveyed reported they are worried about their spouse's or partner's health.  In fact, over half of the 501 women surveyed (56 percent) worry more about their spouse's or partner's health than their own.

Dr. Fisch recommends five health tests every man should discuss with his doctor, including a testicular exam, prostate exam, cholesterol test, testosterone test and blood pressure screening.  "It is important to schedule annual checkups because some men may not recognize the symptoms of many treatable conditions such as low testosterone when they are experiencing symptoms," said Dr. Fis
