Understanding the Underlying Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects the confidence and intimate relationships of men. This condition is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection. ED may arise from various underlying factors. Recognising the causes of erectile dysfunction is pivotal for tailoring effective treatments.

This article uncovers what is erectile dysfunction, its causes and the keys to reclaiming a fulfilling and vibrant quality of life. Learn how our vascular specialists assess and treat erectile dysfunction to restore patients’ vitality and confidence.

Who Is at Risk of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects men across different lifespans. While its prevalence increases with age, younger men are not exempt from its grasp.

Risk Factors of Erectile Dysfunction

  • Age 40 and up.
  • Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances and prostate conditions.
  • Unhealthy lifestyle like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, substance abuse, poor diet, and sedentary habits.
  • Psychological issues such as stress, anxiety, depression and relationship problems.
  • Medications, including those prescribed for hypertension, depression and prostate conditions, may have side effects that contribute to ED.
  • Treatments such as surgery or radiation therapy for prostate cancer can increase your risk.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction

Understanding the causes of erectile dysfunction, which can manifest in various forms, is crucial for developing effective treatment strategies.

Erectile dysfunction symptoms include

  • Difficulty achieving an erection
  • Difficulty maintaining an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Decreased spontaneous erections

Types of Erectile Dysfunction

The specific type of ED depends on the underlying cause.

The Vascular and Endovascular Clinic is skilled in identifying and treating vascular issues that contribute to ED. We utilise diagnostic tools to pinpoint the exact cause and develop a personalised treatment plan to improve blood flow and restore erectile function.

Schedule a consultation and discuss how we can help you overcome erectile dysfunction and reclaim your vitality.

Why Seek Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is more than just a sexual concern. It may signal underlying vascular health issues. While affecting sexual function and potentially leading to emotional distress, untreated ED also indicates problems with blood flow throughout the body.

The same blood vessels that supply blood to the penis are also responsible for nourishing your heart, brain, and other vital organs. When these vessels become narrowed or clogged due to conditions like atherosclerosis, it can not only cause ED but also increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other vascular complications.

At The Vascular and Endovascular Clinic, we understand the importance of comprehensive care. We collaborate with specialists, including urologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists, and psychologists, to create a personalised treatment plan for your needs.
