COLD SPRING, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2015) -  Erectile dysfunction (ED) is not an inevitable part of aging, clarifies PatientPerspectives.org -- videoconferencing liaison service for ED patients considering a penile implant. While ED does not have a single cause, the condition is often an outcome of other health conditions. It is important to fully understand ED before writing it off as "just a part of getting older." Keeping a healthy lifestyle is the best approach to preventing future diseases and illnesses, and therefore decreasing the risk for ED.

Vascular Conditions

Vascular conditions account for 40 percent of ED cases, making them ED's most common causes. These include atherosclerosis, hypertension and high cholesterol. Vascular conditions diminish blood flow to the penis. Substantial arterial circulation is essential for healthy erections. Maintaining vascular health is not only essential for a healthier sex life, but for a healthy blood flow and reducing the risk for heart attack. Preventing these conditions involves healthy eating, consistent exercise, avoiding tobacco, reducing high blood pressure, reducing stress and regular physical examinations by a physician.

Diabetes

Diabetes causes approximately 30 percent of all ED cases. Diabetes affects blood vessels, resulting in poor blood flow. Men with diabetes may be three times more likely to suffer from ED. Preventing diabetes involves a healthy, nutritional diet low in sugar and cholesterol, as well as regular exercise. If left untreated, diabetes can lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, and vision problems.

Medications

ED as a side effect of medication makes up 15 percent of ED cases. Medications for high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, Parkinson's disease, as well as antihistamines and anti-inflammatory medications may lead to ED. Before treating the ED, it is important to understand why it occurred.

Other common ED causes include pelvic surgery, neurological conditions and endocrine disorders.
