Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED or impotence) is the inability of a man to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for intercourse. ED affects more than half of men aged 40 and over.

While erectile dysfunction frequently occurs with age, it’s not a normal part of aging and can even be an early indicator for cardiovascular disease. If you frequently experience erectile dysfunction, it’s important to consult your physician in order to determine the cause of your condition.

What are the risk factors linked to ED?

Most common factors affecting the erectile function are:

  • Age
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Low testosterone
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Stress

What are the treatment options?

In some cases, simple lifestyle and behavioral changes can help restore the sexual function: consider quitting smoking, losing weight, exercising regularly, adhering to a healthy diet.

Approximately 80% of all cases of erectile dysfunction are related to poor vascular health. There are several treatment options for improving blood vessel health and restoring potency.
