There are a variety of causes for ED and the risk of ED increases steadily with age. It’s often the result of other health problems but isn’t considered a normal part of aging.
Given the intricate balance of factors needed to produce an erection, it isn’t surprising that problem elsewhere will cause ED.
They mainly stem from high blood pressure, nerve issues, hormonal problems, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, smoking, diets heavy in red meat as well as certain prescription medication. Stress, injury, surgery, radiation therapy, anxiety, depression, long-haul COVID and even an overconsumption of porn can cause ED. It effects men of all ages, and tends to pick up after the age of 35.
