Is Erectile Dysfunction a Sign of Heart Disease?

An elderly man struggles with heart disease pain and clutches his chest.Heart disease is a cause for concern for both men and women. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease killed over 640,000 people or 1 in 4 deaths in the US during 2018 alone.

These are staggering and scary numbers to consider. Although everyone should be concerned about heart disease, men should be aware of the links between Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and heart disease.

Blood Flow Shortages

Blood flowing through your body keeps you healthy. Any limits to blood flow limit your body’s regular functions.

Atherosclerosis, or clogs in the arteries, can limit this vital flow of blood. One symptom of lower blood pressure and slower flow rates can be challenges for men to get and maintain an erection due to erections occurring when the concentration of blood in the penis is insufficient.

Another issue involving blood flow is endothelium, a dysfunction in the lining of the walls of blood vessels. This issue can slow blood flow to the heart and penis.

The Connection of Erectile Dysfunction and Heart Disease

We need to be clear, ED is not always a sign of heart disease. But men who experience ED should share this information with their healthcare provider to screen for potential heart health risks.

The heart and blood circulation have an impact on men’s ability to get and maintain an erection. Any treatment on symptoms affecting the heart may help treat ED as well.

Additional Risks for ED and Heart Disease

The following conditions can be problematic for folks who have either ED, heart disease, or both:

  • Diabetes
  • Tobacco Use
  • Alcohol Use
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Age
  • Obesity
  • Low Testosterone
