Prevention of erectile dysfunction
I am interested in Medical Prevention in general (of, e.g., coronary artery disease) and in Prevention of Erectile Dysfunction in particular.
My current understanding is that the penile artery, which is smaller than the coronary arteries, is affected by arterial disease BEFORE the coronary, cerebral and other arteries. As a consequence, men with erectile dysfunction often develop coronary heart disease later inthere life.
It also follows that preventive measures against erectile dysfunction are at least in part identical to those for coronary heart disease (no smoking, arterial blood pressure, blood sugar and blood lipids in the normal range, exercise .).
On the other hand, specific preventive measures against the development of erectile dysfunction are less well known. Some hypotheses exist around the role of spontaneous nocturnal erections, but no clear concepts have arisen so far.
I would welcome everybody who is interested in the subject to join the thread and share his thoughts and I hope this will become an interesting discussion.
