A DIY trick for figuring out if you have ED and which country reports the most cases? Also: how ED can point to other illnesses
Erectile Dysfunction is the inability of a man to maintain or attain an erection. It can be caused by either psychological or physical reasons. It is thought that ageing is the most common reason for ED, however there are a number of reasons that may point to this condition. Smoking, antidepressants and stress can all be blamed.
Erectile Dysfunction is a deeply personal problem, which is why many are afraid to openly talk about it. Most men will experience it as some point in their lives, even if the occurrence can be narrowed down to only a few instances. What are you supposed to do if you experience this condition? Consult your doctor. ED could point to the existence of much more serious problems like kidney failure and multiple sclerosis so see it as an indicator that something may not be right with your health.
To help get you prepared for that talk, read on for a few things you may not know about ED.
1. Having diabetes can cause you to suffer from ED 10 – 5 years earlier than it would affect men without the disease. There is a very high risk for people with diabetes to encounter erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives.
2. Although taking care of your teeth is a must, an even greater reason to practice good oral hygiene is that not doing so has been linked to erectile dysfunction. According to studies, the bacteria from your teeth, especially in cases of periodontal disease and chronic gum disease, can enter your bloodstream and damage blood vessels. This affects blood flow to the penis causing ED.
