Erectile Dysfunction Can Be Rectified By Healthy Way Of Life

Researchers say that just leading a healthy lifestyle like regular exercise and nutritious diet can treat Erectile Dysfunction.

Elizabeth Selvin and other researchers at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, collected data on erectile dysfunction (ED) from more than 2,200 adult American men.


The data was collected from participants in the US government's 2001-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), health portal Health Day News reported.

The study, the first with national data on the prevalence of ED in the US, suggests that lifestyle intervention, such as exercise and diet, may be an effective treatment.

"ED varies by age, with five percent of men aged 20 to 40 having ED, to 70 percent in men aged 70 and older," she noted. In fact, the study suggests that about 18 million American men are affected.

"ED is especially prevalent among men with high blood pressure, diabetes and other cardiovascular risk factors," Selvin said.

Increasing physical activity, weight loss, and control of high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes can also reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes, Arthur Schwartzbard, of the New York University's Lipid Treatment and Research Center said.

"I would expect that such overall lifestyle changes could have a positive impact on the incidence of ED in the US."
