According to a recent study, the problem can first surface in men as early as age 40. It’s estimated that 18-30 million men are affected. The question is….why?

This is most evident with diabetes, with nearly one in two men experiencing ED. However, evidence shows that good control of blood sugar can minimize this risk. Other chronic conditions that impair blood flow or nerve impulses throughout the like hardening of the arteries, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, and MS can all be linked to ED. Taking control of your health should help you get control of your ED. Click here to learn about GreenLight Laser and LRP treatments with top international surgeons http://patients.nuehealth.com/home.
Unhealthy habits like smoking, heavy drinking and taking drugs may damage the blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the penis. In fact, men who smoke have almost twice the risk of erectile dysfunction than those who don’t. In addition, men who are overweight and out of shape are also more likely to suffer from ED. So get out there and work up a sweat! Call 866-978-2573 for more information.
Some blood pressure drugs, antidepressants, and tranquilizers all count ED as a possible side-effect. Talk to your doctor if you think a prescription or over-the-counter drug may be causing erectile problems.
