American Heart Health Month and Erectile Dysfunction

In honor of American Heart Month, now is the perfect opportunity to point out the connection between erectile dysfunction and heart problems. If you have been seeking ED treatment in Orange County, CA, or the greater Los Angeles or Beverly Hills areas, you have likely encountered a variety of treatment options. But have you stopped to think about the underlying issues that are contributing to your ED?

The Role of Your Heart

If your penis does not have access to sufficient blood flow, it can result in erectile dysfunction. This lack of blood flow may be the result of atherosclerosis, or the inability of your arteries to dilate fully and harden. This is an underlying cause of not only ED, but heart disease as well. If heart disease progresses, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, or even sudden death.

Atherosclerosis occurs because the inner lining of your blood vessels experience some sort of damage or dysfunction, causing plaque to build up and narrow your arteries. This makes it more difficult for blood to flow through them.

ED Linked to Heart Risks

According to an Australian study of 95,000 men with ED, there was an increased risk of stroke, ischemic heart disease, heart failure, peripheral vascular disease or “other” cardiovascular diseases.

Seek Professional Help

It is important to see a professional if you are suffering from ED, as it could be a sign that a larger issue is going on. Factors such as your fasting blood sugar level, waist circumference, fasting insulin level, your triglyceride/HDL ratios, and your HDL/total cholesterol ratio should all be considered.
