Erectile dysfunction Problem Getting Common in Younger Men

Erectile dysfunction is said to be a common problem among men who are aged above 40. It is not that the problem is not spotted in people aged below 40. It can be said that erectile dysfunction has never been assessed properly in younger men.

As per a novel study, it has been found that one in four men coming up with the problem of erectile dysfunction is the one, who is below 40 years of age. Another shocking revelation is that approximately 50% young men have been suffering from chronic form of erectile dysfunction.

Lead researcher Paolo Capogrosso from the University Vita-Salute San Raffaele, Milan, said that they carried out the research. In the research, they assessed the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of as many as 439 men, who were diagnosed with erectile dysfunction problem.

When the data was assessed, it was found that 26% patient out of 439 were younger than 40 years. A number of other things were noticed during the experiment. Some of the many things were lower body mass index, higher level of testosterone, premature ejaculation and increased smoking rate.

"We now need to consider regularly assessing the integrity of arterial inflow in young patients [which] may be very relevant to their overall long-term health", said Capogrosso.
