For men who suffer from low testosterone, ED, PE – symptoms can range from mild to severe. A doctor’s evaluation from the experienced professionals at Prestige Men’s Medical Center in Tampa can help determine whether these symptoms are related to a true deficiency of hormones or are related to side effects produced by common treatments for hypogonadism or related medications.
Erectile Dysfunction often falls into two different categories: physical and psychological conditions. Physical ED occurs when there is blockage in the arteries of the penis. There are many different types of causes of blocked arteries including heart disease, high cholesterol and hypertension. Older men often experience ED because of the increased plaque buildup in their arteries, however, there are many underlying causes to consider.
Psychological causes of erectile dysfunction can be intense stress, anxiety disorders, depression and even traumatic events. Traumatic events can result in sudden and severe stress that can affect the brain and its functions. When a man goes through an extreme stress or traumatic event, the part of the brain that controls the release of hormones responsible for male sexual arousal becomes oversensitive. This means that not only is there increased blood vessels in the area, there is also more pressure put on the nerves in the penis area which in turn can cause the nerves to become damaged.
Fortunately, many causes of erectile dysfunction can be treated. Sometimes just changing your lifestyle choices can help. If you are constantly stressed out, then you should make lifestyle choices that help you reduce the stress that you experience. If you eat a lot of unhealthy foods, then you should make lifestyle choices to change the types of foods that you consume. Both your diet and your stress levels are contributing factors to this disease.
