Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

|

Did you know that about one in five men suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED)?

If not, it may be because most men are too reluctant to talk about ED. Men learn to be tough and virile. It can be shocking the first time a man experiences ED; confusion, fear, shame, and anger are common emotions. You’ll seldom hear a man bring the topic up in casual conversation: “Yeah, so I couldn’t get it up last night, fourth time this month. You?” Unfortunately, the stigma prevents some men from seeking help. ED is a common health problem. Statistics indicate the age of the man correlates to the risk of having ED; 45% of 45-year-old men experience ED; 60% of 60-year-old men experience it. Chances are many of the men you know have ED. The good news is that there is effective, non-surgical treatment available!

Causes of ED

  • EVascular related – Heart disease, atherosclerosis, obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, tobacco/alcohol/drug abuse. Medications including antidepressants, antihistamines, and medications to treat high blood pressure, pain or prostate conditions.
  • EEndocrine related – diabetes is an example of an endocrine disease that can cause ED and nerve damage; impaired blood flow and reduced hormone levels are other complications.
  • ENeurological and nerve disorders – Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, prostate enlargement, or cancer.
  • EPsychological causes – depression, anxiety, or other mental health conditions, stress, and relationship problems.

The Problem

ED can be frustrating for you and your partner and can even adversely affect your relationship. In terms of treating ED, oral and injectable drugs and surgical implants only address the symptom and create a cycle of dependence. Drugs such as Viagra and Cialis only provide a temporary solution to ED, can be harmful if not taken as prescribed, and even when taken as prescribed, can have significant side-effects. Penile implants involve invasive surgery which comes with an increased risk of infection if you have diabetes. Also, implants have been known to malfunction.
