Here are some of the most common causes of this devastating disorder

Obesity

There’s a strong link between obesity and erectile dysfunction. According to a study presented in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the degree of obesity in men correlates with a decrease in testosterone levels. Apart from having a lower libido, obese men are more likely to experience impotence. Obesity is often linked to medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. All of these interfere with sexual performance.


 

Aging

Erections take place when blood enters the penile tissue. The functioning of the small blood vessels has to be good for a strong erectile response. As men age, the condition of their cardiovascular system will change and many will experience some problems. Atherosclerosis, for example, could be a cause of impotence. Hormonal imbalances stemming from age could also interfere with the ability to get and sustain an erection.

 

Emotional Disorders

Did you know that a man’s emotions play a key role in determining whether an erection can be developed and maintained. During sexual excitement, the man must have an emotional response. There are a variety of emotional disorders that can cause impotence, including depression, fatigue, performance anxiety and drug abuse.

 

Endocrine Disease

The endocrine system is responsible for manufacturing a variety of hormones. These hormones help regulate a plethora of functions in the body. Hormones are needed for metabolism, mood, reproduction and sexual functions.

One endocrine disease, diabetes, is one of the leading causes of impotence. When a man suffers with diabetes, his body cannot properly use insulin, which results in high glucose levels. One of the most common side effects of diabetes is neuropathy. Neuropathy can cause nerve damage. This damage can a loss of sensation in the penis. Other complications of diabetes include decreased blood flow and hormone levels, both of which can cause erectile dysfunction.

Neurological Disorders

There are a variety of neurological disorders that can cause impotence. Neurological disorders can diminish the brain’s ability to send signals to the reproductive system. When the reproductive system cannot get the appropriate signals, a man’s ability to achieve an erection can be diminished. There are a number of neurological disorders that can cause erectile dysfunction, including Alzheimer’s disease, temporal lobe epilepsy, brain tumours, multiple sclerosis, stroke and spinal tumours. Additionally, nerve damage can be caused during a prostate gland surgery.

 

Medications

There are certain medications that can affect a man’s blood flow. When blood flow is affected, impotence can occur. Medications, such as alpha adrenergic blockers, beta blockers and chemotherapy medications can negatively impact a man’s ability to obtain or maintain an erection. Other medicines, including diuretics, synthetic hormones or medications that affect the central nervous system, including depressants and stimulants, can prevent erections.

 

Cardiovascular Disease

Medical disease can cause impotence problems in men. Diseases that affect the heart can cause erectile dysfunction. In order to achieve an erection there must be ample blood flow to the penis. Heart disease can diminish blood flow and cause impotence. High cholesterol, high blood pressure and atherosclerosis can all cause impotence. Additionally, many of the medications use to treat cardiovascular disease can also contribute to impotency. Coreg, Lopressor and a variety of diuretics, including Lasix can erectile dysfunction.
