When does erectile dysfunction usually start?

May 20, 2014

While erectile dysfunction can affect men of any age, it is more common in men over the age of 40. This can be due to a variety of factors including decreased testosterone and/or medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity. These conditions affect the blood vessels, amount of blood flow, and nerves of the penile tissue. All of the above functions are necessary for a successful erection.

For men living in the Austin area, including Georgetown, San Marcos, Fredericksburg, and neighboring cities, visit Dr. Shaw at the Austin Urology Institute to seek treatment for erectile dysfunction.
