Some people think that ED is of course a reason to worry about, but it is not dangerous for general health, a person can simply take an ED medication, receive the positive result and forget about the problem.
The doctors, however, say that though ED by itself isn’t a dangerous condition, it can be one of the earliest alarms of other underlying disorders that may be very serious. The most common underlying health conditions are heart diseases, diabetes and atherosclerosis. Erectile dysfunction can also be a symptom of hypertension, nerve (neurological) disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and even hormone imbalances.
So the medical professionals always recommend making the necessary physical examination and telling all the symptoms of your condition to determine if you have erectile dysfunction and other serious medical conditions. A thorough medical examination and tests may help in identifying the cause of ED, find a right treatment, restore your sex life and renew it; in addition, it may also warn a patient to more serious disorders requiring immediate treatment.
For those males who have persistent erectile problems, it is vital to visit a qualified doctor for a complete physical examination and testing.
Remember that having difficulties in attaining erections is not because you lack sexual attraction to your partner, yes, sexual attraction means a lot but usually erectile problems appear due to the following things:
- heart problems, such as high blood pressure and atherosclerosis;
- diabetes about 35% to 50% of diabetics have ED;
- prescription drugs – medications for hypertension, anxiety, depression, baldness and others;
- multiple sclerosis;
- stress, anxiety, fear and depression;
- smoking and drinking alcohol;
- prostate and bladder surgery.
