A 2004 Harvard Study found that walking for at least 30 minutes every day reduces the risk of ED by about 40%.
A wide range of ED rates have been reported, even in men who haven’t had surgery. But for the most part, the younger a man is, the more likely he is to regain full erections after surgery. Men under 60, and especially those under 50, are more likely to recover their erections than older men.

One rough-and-ready way of working out whether your ED has a physical cause is to see whether there any circumstances in which you get an erection. If you can produce one when masturbating but not with a partner, wake up with an erection, or have erections during the night, then there's a good chance that your ED has psychological causes. How can I prevent it? Have a healthy lifestyle. Quitting smoking and drinking alcohol in moderation will help. Regular aerobic exercise and a low-fat diet will also reduce the risks of atherosclerosis. If you have diabetes, ensure it's properly controlled. Should I see a doctor?

Sometimes, ED happens when your hormones are out of balance. Your doctor can perform a blood test to check your hormones.
Men in their 40s with erectile dysfunction (ED) compared with men without a history of ED have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) in 5 years.
Since endothelial dysfunction, CVD and ED are closely associated in epidemiological studies, the question for clinicians is whether to recommend the man presenting with ED undergo a cardiovascular (CV) evaluation. Clearly, based on numerous studies, ED can be considered at least a ‘marker’ for possible further vascular disease or CVD.15 In their report, Vlachopoulos and coworkers make the point that the man presenting with ED, the clinician, is offered an opportunity to attempt to improve the health of the man by addressing lifestyle modification, and consider further vascular evaluation owing to the clear relationship between endothelial dysfunction, ED and CVD.19
Defined by an inability to develop and maintain an erection firm enough for sexual relations, erectile dysfunction (ED) affects approximately one in four men during their lifetime. According to research scientists, up to 75 percent of ED cases occur due to medical causes. When functioning normally, neurotransmitters initiate an erection by relaying signals from the brain to the vascular system. The resulting increased blood flow and pressure to the penis allows tube and elastic like tissue within the penis to expand, achieving erection. Blood flow reduction to the penis Scarring of the penile tissues does not allow for a normal erection- Peyronie's disease Nerve damage (may occur directly to the penis or to areas leading to it) Hormonal or metabolic disorders such as diabetes Psychological conditions (mainly seen with ED in males under the age of 40) Vein leakage, also known as a venous leak Trauma, injury, or surgical procedures to the spinal cord or pelvic area Vascular disorders or disease such as high blood pressure Neurologic related conditions such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease High levels of cholesterol Heart disease Occurrence and/or treatment for enlarged prostate or prostate cancer Obesity Sleep-related disorders Tobacco use Diseases such as alcoholism and other substance abuse disorders Psychological related issues
The common PDE5 inhibitor drugs approved in the United States are sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra and Staxyn, the generic form), tadalafil (Cialis), or avanafil (Stendra). All of the currently approved PDE5 inhibitors work in the same way. They differ in the number of available doses, how quickly they work and last in your system, the dosing, and to some extent in the side effects. However, they generally share the same indications and contraindications. Currently, tadalafil is the only medication that patients can take on a daily basis and is approved for the treatment of both ED and BPH (benign enlargement of the prostate).
