Though erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition, it’s also a very sensitive subject to talk about for men who suffer from it. But men afflicted are certainly not alone. Statistically, mild to moderate ED affects approximately 10 percent of men per decade of life (meaning 40 percent of men in their 40s, 50 percent of men in their 50s, etc.), but ED can occur at any age. Older men, however, are more likely to have health conditions that require certain medications that may contribute to ED symptoms. Furthermore, roughly 5 percent of men in their 40s suffer from complete erectile dysfunction, and that number increases to about 15 percent by age 70.
Aside from age, there are several risk factors that can lead to erectile dysfunction, such as obesity, diabetes, depression, and high blood pressure, among others. Whichever factors contribute to ED, there are several treatment options available. The most common of which are oral medications that have proven effective in treating the condition. These medications can, however, have the potential for unwanted side effects, leaving some men to explore different clinics in their area to find other ways to alleviate their sexual health issue. Though surgery might be an option in some extreme cases of ED, there are some innovative, noninvasive treatment options recently made available that have little to no side effects. Some of these options are offered at Transformative Dermatology in Franklin, TN.
