The Causes of ED DiscoveredED is an extremely complicated male condition. As it’s becoming more common, new research is being done about its causes and cures.

New guidelines on ED that just appeared in the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation review the most common causes of ED.

Fortunately, many of them are completely reversible.

Here are the risk factors identified by the scientists.

1. ED is more likely in older men, not simply because they are old but because old age leads to a general deterioration in health.

2. High blood pressure can increase your risk of ED by a factor of up to seven, and ED tends to be more severe in people with high blood pressure.

3. Clogging of arteries by cholesterol or blood clots reduces blood flow to the penis.

4. Conditions that affect breathing and lower blood oxygen, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea, increase the risk of ED. The former is often a result of smoking and can increase your risk of ED by up to 87%.

5. Obesity increases your risk of ED in proportion to the amount of extra weight you carry. Weight loss can definitely improve sexual function.

6. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are ED risks, but the latter is much worse, with 66.3% of patients suffering from ED.

7. Abnormal levels of fats in the blood, including high levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and low levels of HDL cholesterol, reduce penile blood flow.

8. Gout can increase your risk of ED by 20% because a high uric acid level in your blood causes blood vessel dysfunction.

9. Low testosterone, although few men really suffer from this.

10. Hormonal disorders, such as Addison’s disease, Cushing’s syndrome, and hyperthyroidism.

11. Neurological conditions, such as spinal injuries, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy.

12. Lower urinary tract symptoms such as enlarged prostate.

13. Chronic pelvic pain syndrome can increase your risk of ED by 33%.

14. Substance abuse, including opioids, amphetamines, methamphetamine, alcohol, and cannabis.

15. Medicines, including most drugs for high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, and psychosis.

16. Depression, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety.

17. Relationship or marriage problems.

18. Low sexual desire.

This shows just how complex sexual function is and how proud we should be of ourselves when we get it right.
