Almost five out of ten men will experience problems in keeping or getting an erection at some point in their adulthood. This medical condition is known as Erectile Dysfunction (ED). ED occurs when the penis does not receive enough blood to support erection and therefore the man is incapable of having sexual intercourse. In most of the older men, ED happens repeatedly, thereby hampering their sexual life. There is a common myth about ED that it happens in only older men only. But the fact is ED can affect younger men as well.
What causes erectile dysfunction in men of different age group?
Well, the cause of erectile dysfunction varies from person to person. It can occur from psychological, lifestyle and neurological issues. There are several physical and physiological disorders that can lead to ED.
Lifestyle habits that are related to erectile dysfunction
The kind of lifestyle we lead has a direct impact on our health. Certain poor lifestyle habits like excessive alcohol intake, smoking does not only affect the liver and the lungs respectively but also fertility in men. Men who lead a poor lifestyle by consuming alcohol and tobacco have higher chances of developing ED.
The next factor that can cause erectile dysfunction is poor diet. Lack of proper nutrients in the body causes ED. Poor diet leads to obesity and diabetes. These lifestyle diseases are closely related to erectile dysfunction. Men with obesity have higher chances of ED.
