Obesity Linked to Erectile Dysfunction
Being overweight and obese can damage your health and cause serious problems as you get older. What is even more alarming is that it can also be one of the causes of erectile dysfunction.
According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine, over 18 million men in the United States over the age of 20 suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED).
Men who are overweight and obese may show symptoms of high cholesterol and an even higher risk of hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Diabetes being a serious consequence of being overweight and obese is largely associated with ED.
Changing your lifestyle such as eating and maintaining a healthy diet accompanied by physical activity can help not only avoid ED, but can pose as an effective treatment for it. The link between obesity and ED should motivate men to improve their lifestyle choices and maintain a happy sexual relationship with their partner.
Talking and discussing your lifestyle with your doctor can lead you in the right direction of leading a healthier lifestyle and addressing any sexual problems you may have.
