In our last blog for Men’s Health Month, we’d like to guide you through a common condition affecting millions of men – low testosterone. Testosterone (known as T) is the primary sex hormone in men, produced by the testes.
On June 14, 2018, Team San Diego Sports Medicine/Zoca finished the 930-mile ultracycling Race Across the West in 49 hours and 55 minutes. The 4-person age 60-69 mixed team consisting of Rob Bernhard (SDSM employee), Tammy Tabeek, Greg Campbell-Cunefare, and Larry Nelson came in FIRST in their division, set a division record, and placed THIRD overall. It was a race down to the wire with the first two teams tying for first place only three minutes ahead of Team SDSM. Team SDSM was the oldest team to cross the finish line and gave the younger teams a race they’ll never forget. Special thanks to the hard-working crew: Jo Baxter (SDSM employee), Bob Esch, Kathi Medina, Terry Frey, Jim Keller, and Mike Crawley!
Most of us know men of many different ages in our lives, so let’s take a moment during Men’s Health Month to remind them of some healthy habits as they age through the decades!
IN YOUR 20s:
Now’s the time when you may feel you are in your prime and you’ll never feel the effects of an excessive lifestyle. But now’s the time when you should develop healthy behaviors that you can sustain for decades to come!
