The two may not be apparently related but a recent study has found that men suffering from erectile dysfunction may be more likely to develop cardiovascular diseases.

According to the study published in the journal Vascular Medicine, risk factors for erectile dysfunction and CV disease

are similar – including older age, smoking, obesity, and diabetes, among others. “Erectile dysfunction (ED) is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and CVD mortality. However, the relationship between ED and subclinical CVD is less clear… In conclusion, this study confirms an association between ED and subclinical CVD and may shed additional light on the shared mechanisms between ED and CVD, underscoring the importance of aggressive CVD risk assessment and management in persons with ED,” researchers wrote in the journal. They include Chukwuemeka Osondu from the Baptist Health,South Florida, Bryan Vo from the Florida International University and Ehimen Aneni from the Mount Sinai Medical Center in the US

men with erectile dysfunction are at greater risk of having identifiable sub-clinical CV disease and will benefit from an active CV disease work-up

In addition to being an important health and quality of life issue for men, erectile dysfunction has long been associated with cardiovascular (CV) disease. Multiple overlapping mechanisms lead to the development of both erectile dysfunction and CV disease. Researchers sought to establish erectile dysfunction as a simple and effective marker of underlying sub-clinical CV disease.

They hypothesised that “measures of erectile dysfunction could be a simple effective CV disease risk stratification tool, particularly in young men who are less likely to undergo aggressive CVD risk assessment and management.”

The authors conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of 28 studies that examined the link between erectile dysfunction and measures of early CV disease.

“Our study findings indicate that (young) men (with erectile dysfunction) are at greater risk of having identifiable sub-clinical CV disease and will benefit from an active CV disease work-up,” one researcher said.
