Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
Common Symptoms include:
- Difficulty or inability to achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sex
- Less frequent morning erections
- Reduced sexual desire
- Low testosterone levels
Millions of men are diagnosed with ED every year in the United States, and that doesn’t include the unreported cases. Studies have shown that 50% of 50 year old men have some form of ED. A sexual dysfunction can be very difficult to discuss, or get help with, but it is statistically likely to happen to every man.
Risk factors include:
- High blood sugar (Diabetes)
- High blood pressure (Hypertension)
- Cardiovascular disease (heart issues)
- High cholesterol
- Prostate Cancer
- Using drugs or drinking too much alcohol
- Lacking exercise
Even though ED becomes more common as men age, growing old is not always going to be the underlying cause of Erectile Dysfunction. Some men stay sexually functional into their 80’s, meaning it could indicate an early sign of a more serious health problem. Finding and treating the reason for ED is a vital first step.
