Erectile Dysfunction Associated with Heart Disease, Study Reveals

A recent Australian study has revealed that a man suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) is more likely to be hospitalized for heart problems. The more severe the ED, the greater the risk of a cardiovascular problem.

This was reported in a news item on NBCNews.com entitled Erectile Dysfunction May Increase a Man’s Heart Woes.

The findings yielded the same results as earlier studies that associate ED to elevated risks of heart problem. The report mentioned that the results remained valid with or without the presence of factors that increase the chance of getting heart disease, such as age, obesity, and smoking. The recent studies investigate whether the severity of erectile dysfunction increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Men with erectile dysfunction of any severity (mild, moderate or severe) were at increased risk for hospitalization for heart failure compared to men who did not have ED.</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Those with severe ED were about twice as likely to die during the study period than men without ED, the researchers said.

 The report also added:

The study only found an association, not a cause-effect link. The researchers also did not have information about any medications participants were taking (some medications have ED as a side effect.)

If you are experiencing signs of male impotence or erectile dysfunction, visiting your physician can give you the opportunity to find out if there are other underlying problems in your body.
