What Causes ED
There is no known single most reason that causes ED. It can be caused by one or more of the following: 1. Lifestyle: Smoking, Alcohol and substance abuse and or lack of weight control and exercise. 2. health problems including diabetes, neurological problems, medications, and prostate cancer amongst others. For Men who have ED caused by lifestyle choices, a change in lifestyle will go along way to eliminate these problem for good. ED can also be a warning sign for serious health problems such as high blood pleasure, heart disease, etc.
Currently, there are several medicines in the market like Sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra), and tadalafil (Cialis). These are all are phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors. They exist in different molecular forms and are unevenly distributed throughout the body. One of the forms of phosphodiesterase is termed PDE5. The prescription PDE5 inhibitors sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra) and tadalafil (Cialis) are prescription drugs which are taken orally. They work by blocking the action of PDE5, which causes cGMP to degrade. Their function is mainly to play an important role in the flight or fight response and the regulation of glucose levels in the blood. They also helps in relaxation of vascular smooth muscles leading to vasodilation (the widening of arteries) hence increased blood flow. (They work only when you are sexually aroused. They usually start to work in 15 to 45 minutes). The side effects for these medicines are high and risky which includes Stroke or heart attack, severe heart diseases, uncontrolled diabetes. Using these medications with drugs like nitroglycerin can cause your blood pressure to drop. Most of the deaths from the prescription medicine above are due to mixing these two.
