Erectile Dysfunction Much More Common among Young Men Than Previously Thought
According to a new analysis, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, the number of young men suffer from erectile dysfunction may be much superior than previously thought.
Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence or ED, happen when a man is not capable to sustain an erection which is sufficient for sexual intercourse.
Prime treatment options for ED are the drugs Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. However, despite the high prevalence of ED, most patients receive no treatment. Most erectile dysfunction (ED) complaints are among men above the age of 40 and prevalence enlarges with age. However, the risk and prevalence of erectile dysfunction among young people hasn’t been looked at very thoroughly.
Researchers have recognized that one quarter of men seeking help for ED are younger than 40. Half of these men reported severe ED.
114 (26 percent) of the men were under the age of 40. The younger patients tended to have a lower body mass index, more testosterone in their blood and a lower rate of concomitant medical situation.
Smoking and illicit drug use was more general in young men and they were also more likely to experience premature ejaculation.
The rate of severe erectile dysfunction was higher among the younger patients compared to the older ones (48.8 percent versus 40 percent respectively).
ED (Erectile Dysfunction) is defined as the incapability to attain and/or maintain penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. ED is more general than many people understand. ED is said to affect one in five men and is listed as one of the most common sexual health problems in India Naturally, ED is considered to be affecting men of advancing age. In fact, some studies revealed ED is affecting 69.5% of world men above 40 years of age, but it’s an issue men find very hard to discuss, regardless of age.
