Understanding Erectile Dysfunction: Causes and Implications

My Clinic: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that affects around 12 million men in the US, with the risk increasing with age. Male sexual function requires the interaction of vascular, neurologic, hormonal, and psychological systems. ED can be caused by problems in any of these areas. It is important for healthcare providers to approach ED without judgment and to focus on coaching and understanding the patient's needs. ED is linked to multiple other diseases, especially cardiovascular ones, that should be asked about during the visit.
