Vitamin D Deficiency May Cause Erectile Dysfunction, Study Suggests

I hope that you’ll enjoy reading my blog. Feel free to share it on social media and visit my Xing, Google+ and About.me pages.

Turns out, vitamin D not only strengthens our bones, but may also be responsible for ensuring male erectile function. According to a new study, which was recently presented at the American Heart Association's annual meeting in Orlando, FL, vitamin D deficiency leads to a 35 percent increase in the likelihood of erectile dysfunction (ED) among men!

Having analyzed data collected from more than 3,400 men, researchers found that around 16 percent of those men had ED and 30 percent had insufficient levels of vitamin D. However, vitamin D deficiency was 6 percent more common among men who suffered from erectile dysfunction.

In their presentation, researchers pointed out that their findings are not conclusive and more research is needed to verify the connection between the vitamin and its effects on male body. Nevertheless, if verified, this discovery may lead to new approaches in treating erectile dysfunction.

Inability to achieve or maintain an erection is a serious medical condition that affects millions of men around the world. However, modern scientific advances have made it possible for most men to successfully treat ED, and enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle well into their senior years. If you experience the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, don’t ignore them. Schedule an appointment with a qualified physician to discuss treatment options that will work for your particular situation.
