You may have heard this or not. The factors that can cause erectile dysfunction (ED) in males can also cause cardiovascular (CV) disease. That makes ED a warning sign .for heart and vascular issues. Which means that men experiencing ED need a thorough examination by a doctor who is a CV or heart specialist. “Take a Viagra and call me in the morning” isn’t sufficient.
The usual caveat applies: I’m not a doctor, I’m a researcher. I’m simply reporting a finding that if you have ED you need to see a heart specialist. If you have a loved one with ED, you need to get him to a specialist. You’ll save a lot of potential anguish if you do.
