Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

There is a simple rule of thumb that we in the "Curing Erectile Dysfunction" business use and it is this: Between the ages of 20 and 45 years 70% of erectile dysfunction or Impotence will have a psychogenic cause; while between the ages 60 years and upwards 70% of ED will be have a physiological cause. Or if you want to simplify this even further you could say that most Erectile Dysfunction in younger men is caused by anxiety about their performance while most ED in older men is caused by physical factors like hardening or their arteries (arteriosclerosis) or lowering of their testosterone levels - the so-called Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome.
In any case, suffice here to make this point: There is a huge difference between the type of ED that young men get and the type of Impotence that the older man gets. Therefore, logically, the same treatment will not work for both groups and that is why self-medication with online medication for Erectile Dysfunction is often a waste of money and never a good idea.
If I were asked to describe the typical older man, coming to my clinic or visiting my website seeking help with solving his ED problem, it would go like this:
(a) He would be aged between 65 and 75 years old.
(b) He often would be in a second or new relationship.
(c) He would be taking prescription medication for medical conditions not necessarily related to his ED.
(d) He would have tried Viagra or some other ED medication and been disappointed with the results.
(e) He may have a history of prostate problems or prostate surgery like TURP.
(f) He may well also have coronary artery disease and/or type 2 diabetes.

Obviously, such an individual needs specialist management if he is ever to enjoy a meaningful sexual relationship again. Space here does not allow me go into any great detail beyond making two observations: Simply throwing Viagra or Cialis or Levitra at a man like that described above is bad medicine and is destine to have disappointing results.
And secondly, there is now a growing body of clinical evidence that low testosterone levels can play a major contributory role in causing Erectile Dysfunction in older men. Therefore, when appropriate, Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT can play a significant part in restoring satisfactory sexual function. Often, when conventional ED medications fail to bring about resolution, the addition of TRT can make all the difference.
