Combat Erectile Dysfunction – This Heart Beat Irregularity Raises ED Risk 61%
Researchers have just published a study in the Arab Journal of Urology showing that atrial fibrillation is another cardiovascular condition that puts men at risk of ED too.
Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of irregular heartbeat.
According to the American Heart Association, instead of beating regularly to send blood to your lower heart chambers, your upper heart chambers quiver or stutter instead, pushing the blood through to the lower chambers with irregular stops and starts.
It’s a serious condition all on its own, but most people aren’t aware of it.
So, perhaps if men knew that it caused erectile dysfunction too, they might pay it more attention, and that might help to save them from more serious health problems.
The authors of the new study looked at previously conducted studies on the relationship between atrial fibrillation and ED. They only included studies with the strongest scientific results, which whittled the field down to just five. The subjects in these studies totalled 4,096 men with atrial fibrillation and 25,733 without it.
Unsurprisingly the research concluded that conditions present alongside atrial fibrillation cause erectile dysfunction, so we’re talking about things like smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, lack of physical activity, and sleep apnea.
When these were left out (to test what effects atrial fibrillation on its own had on erectile dysfunction) men with atrial fibrillation were still 61 percent more likely to have ED than the men with regular heartbeats were.
The authors could not explain the mechanisms behind this relationship, but they did use previously published studies to speculate about it.
Erectile dysfunction occurs when reservoirs within the penis don’t receive enough blood to sustain enough hardness for sexual intercourse. This usually happens when your blood vessels are damaged, possibly by inflammation, possibly by oxidative stress, possibly by hormonal disturbances, or possibly by a range of other factors and their interactions with each other.
One chemical necessary for an erection is nitric oxide, which one study suggested was in short supply in atrial fibrillation patients. Could there be a link there? It certainly looks that way.
Another study suggested that atrial fibrillation patients had far higher levels of inflammation in their bodies than people with regular heartbeats, something that can damage penile arteries.
And beta-blockers, the most commonly prescribed drug for atrial fibrillation patients have also been found to cause ED.
Combat Erectile Dysfunction – Men: Your ED Is Caused by Your Blood Type
Occasionally studies are released showing no matter how hard we try, we are still somewhat dependent on our genes and biological constitutions.
The December 2016 journal Archivio Italiano Di Urologia released a study from Ordu University in Turkey revealed just that.
It compared the occurrence of ED in men with different blood group types.
Results: one specific blood group is almost 500% more likely to suffer ED than another. But even if you belong to this blood group, there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
Of their 350 subjects, some had ED while others were sexually fully functional.
To ensure that other illnesses like cardiovascular disease and diabetes did not muddle their conclusions, they recorded the presence of these diseases and made sure the results remained the same even without the subjects with these conditions.
Men with blood type O scored the best in the study, meaning their Erectile Dysfunction was less severe or non-existent.
This was followed by those with B-type, then those with A-type, and finally AB-type scoring the worst.
This pattern held across all age groups.
Comparing other types to O-group, the AB group had a 4.7 times higher risk of ED, the A-group a 3.9 times higher risk, and the B-group a 3.5 times higher risk.
In other words, when it comes to ED, people with the AB blood type have the greatest chance of developing ED and the worst symptoms when it occurs, while those with the O-type are the luckiest in both frequency and severity.
Now, despite your blood type, there are still a lot of things you can do to improve your erection function. And you’re by no means a slave to this condition for live.
You can stop smoking, limit your alcohol intake, eat plenty of vegetables and fruit, avoid refined vegetable oils and processed non-whole grains, exercise regularly, and so forth.
Combat Erectile Dysfunction – Is Age Really Related to ED? (fact or fiction)
Most medical scientists believe that ED becomes more common as men age. Studies have certainly backed up this perception.
But one of the biggest problems with studies is the fact that they rely on men’s honesty to accurately self-report their ED. Some men may hide it; others may report it when it is not actually present.
To get to the heart of the age/ED relationship, scientists need to know more about onset and other concurrent conditions to separate myth form reality.
To obtain some sense of the age profile of the people who have ED in the general American population, scientists decided they would consult all the electronic medical and insurance databases to which they could obtain access. They published their study in the International Journal of Clinical Practice.
They wanted to answer two questions:
1) Are older men more likely to have been diagnosed or treated for ED than younger men?
2) If men with other conditions that cause ED are excluded from the analysis, are older men still more likely to have been diagnosed or treated for ED than younger men?
Their analysis answered both these questions with a solid “yes.”
The average age of men with ED diagnosis or treatment was 55.2 years.
Between ages 18 and 29, only 0.4% of men were diagnosed. By the time men reached 60-69, the diagnosis rate had shot up to 11.5%.
Only 4.6% of men in their 80s obtained diagnoses, dropping further to 0.9% in their 90s.
When men with high blood pressure, other cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, and benign prostatic hyperplasia were excluded, older men were still more likely to seek diagnoses than younger men were.
Therefore, up to men’s seventh decade, ED and age seem to be strongly related.
Since many men with ED may not seek diagnoses, though, the validity of this assumption is dubious.
That is why these scientists do not claim their study can show that age actually causes ED.
And that’s where I agree. Age does not equal erectile dysfunction. It’s not a normal part of aging. How can I make such a bold claim?
