Impotence – a sign of the coming of heart attack

Erectile dysfunction can be an early sign of impending heart problems in men, which should be treated with the help of levitra. This is the conclusion reached by scientists who analyzed data from 12 different studies.

Science has long suspected the existence of a connection between impotence or erectile dysfunction and heart health. There is a theory that supplying the penis with blood during erection the arteries can start to get clogged sooner than the arteries of the heart, which are larger. And therefore, erection problems are a harbinger of future coronary artery disease.

Chinese scientists from Soochow University pooled data on 12 scientific studies dealing with the relationship of impotence and heart disease, were used for information on the 37 000 men. “This meta-analysis suggests that erectile dysfunction significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, stroke and mortality associated with all of the above,” say Chinese scientists in his article for the journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Overall, they found that the risk of heart disease among men with erectile dysfunction increases by 48%. Among this category grows and the number of premature deaths when compared with men, having sexual problems.

Traditional risk factors like Smoking, obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure do not explain this relationship that further strengthens the validity of assumptions about the impotence as the main problem. So that men must struggle with erectile dysfunction if they do not want to heart disease. It is recommended to lead a more active physical lifestyle and to take statins – drugs that reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood.
