Causes of ED

There are several reasons why a man may experience ED symptoms, which include trouble getting or keeping an erection, and less sexual desire and drive.

The brain, emotions, hormones, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels all contribute to male sexual arousal. With all of these things involved, it’s often tricky to pinpoint the exact cause.

The most common causes of ED typically include:

Our providers at Nevada Family Care are all experts at treating ED and the underlying conditions that cause it, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.

ED can be a risk factor for heart disease

Many men are surprised when they learn that ED can be an early warning sign of cardiovascular disease. Wondering how? The reason is that, in order to maintain a firm erection, more blood needs to go to the penis and stay there for some time.

Certain conditions, like atherosclerosis, can stop blood flow to the penis. Atherosclerosis is a condition that clogs arteries and blood vessels, and it’s also one of the leading causes of heart attacks, strokes, and ED.

High blood pressure is a condition that puts too much pressure on your blood vessels and damages them. Not only can it cause a heart attack, but it can also lead to erection problems if it damages the vessels that deliver blood to the penis.

Treatment for ED

Some cases of ED see improvement with simple diet and lifestyle changes. Others may require medications, and rarely, surgery.

When you visit Nevada Family Center, one of our providers first goes over your medical history and performs a physical exam. Once we determine the cause of your ED, we can start setting up the best treatment option.

Many conditions that cause ED can easily be managed with the help of a Nevada Family Center provider. If your ED is the result of high blood pressure, for example, we offer nutritional counseling and weight loss programs that can improve your overall health and blood pressure.

Regardless of the cause, we can treat your ED and other underlying conditions that are making it worse.
