Erectile Dysfunction at 40: Facts, Causes, Treatment

As a result of research, US scientists found that men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) have 70% higher chance of dying earlier than men who are not familiar with this problem. Erectile dysfunction is considered a problem characteristic of men over 40 years of age, although it is common among men of a younger age.

The study, conducted by outpatient clinic in Milan, results of which were published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, suggests that one in four who underwent treatment of erectile dysfunction was at the age of 40 years. 26% of patients who complained of ED were younger than 39 years. The study also noted that age can determine how dysfunction affects patient’s life. More than half of men under the age of 40 complained that they feel this condition as severe. Elderly people suffer less from erectile dysfunction, but have increased risk of developing Peyronie’s disease, which occurs when scar tissue causes penis to curve.erectile dysfunction causes early death
