Recent research conducted by Chinese scientists has manifested that males having erectile problems may be at a greater risk of developing heart disorders, stroke and heart failure.
It is well known that cardiovascular disease is one of the main causes for impotence. The researchers suggested that impotence may be a separate risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and meaningfully increases the chance of cardiovascular disease. The head researcher Dr. Li-Qiang Qin, from the department of nutrition and food hygiene in the School of Public Health at Soochow University in Suzhou said that “erectile dysfunction may not only contribute to cardiovascular risk prediction, but also serve as a potential target for cardiovascular disease prevention.”
The study held by Chinese researchers analyzed results of the12 studies published between 2005 and 2011 involving about 37,000 males. The connection between erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular disease was appearing of heart disorders from 4 to 16 years after ED was diagnosed. The researchers stated a meaningful linking between impotence and the increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
Indeed, men suffering from erectile problems had a 48 % increased risk for cardiovascular disease, a 46 %increased risk for heart disease, and a 35 % increased risk for stroke in comparison to males having no problems with potency.
The researches excluded other risk factors such as age, overweight, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol level, smoking and alcohol abuse and there was still a 54 % increased risk for cardiovascular disease related to ED.
Qin’s group made a suggestion based on the results of the studies that impotence is a separate risk factor for cardiovascular disease. ED sufferers should know that they have more chances for cardiovascular disease and be ready to make some lifestyle changes to keep general health and prevent heart disorders.
