A Special Supplement on Men's Health

This supplement was sponsored by the Primary Care Education Consortium and the Primary Care Metabolic Group.


Since chronic diseases are largely self-managed, the family physician must work collaboratively with each patient to individualize therapy. One key consideration in individualizing therapy is patient gender, since men and women often manifest, deal with, and manage diseases differently. This supplement highlights these gender-related differences by focusing on the management of 6 diseases in men, including benign prostatic hyperplasia, gout, diabetes, acute coronary syndrome, coronary heart disease, and dyslipidemia.
