Erectile dysfunction has an abbreviation. When you give a complaint or a disease an abbreviation, that is the first step before you start being able to commercially treat it. Very few things have abbreviated names that do not have treatments attached to them. It is kind of interesting. My favorite one is opiate-induced constipation. Now they call it OIC because there is an expensive medicine for it. Before that, it was just called constipation.
What do you do for ED? The first thing you have to do is figure out why you have it in the first place. It is not normal, and it is not something that a man should experience. It is not something that men really want to experience, but it can happen for a number of different reasons.
One reason it can happen is due to hormone imbalance, and this is probably the most common case. Folks that listen to the advertisements on this radio station and others will hear lots of ads for testosterone. It is true that testosterone levels naturally decrease with age, but the real problem with most men, is estrogen increase.
When estrogen levels go up, something goes down, and you end up with this ED issue. The testosterone to estrogen ratio should be 5:1, respectively. This relationship between testosterone and estrogen is the most influential factor with regards to ED.
The second reason ED can become an issue is when the prostate becomes infected. If this is the case, a course of antibiotics to treat the infection is necessary. Whether it is an ethical prescription or over the counter, there are ways to treat prostate infection. If a man wakes up to urinate at least two, three, or four or more times a night, there is most likely an element of prostatitis involved.
The third reason that causes men to suffer from ED is an insulin issue. If the insulin levels skyrocket, something else does not. You know what I mean?
That being said, if there is an emergency need for treatment, there are quick relief options like Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra. They are about $30-$35 a tablet, which sounds like a lot of money, until you factor in dinner and a movie.
