Erectile Dysfunction Linked to Diabetes

Many recent studies found that erectile dysfunction is an early warning sign of cardiovascular disease and heart attack. A study led by Sean Skeldon from the Center for Health Services and Policy in Vancouver, Canada found that erectile dysfunction (ED) increased the risk of diabetes by 220 percent. The researchers found no link between ED and high blood pressure or high blood cholesterol. Men with erectile dysfunction, particularly those in middle age, should be thoroughly screened for diabetes. (Annals of Family Medicine, 13: 331-335, 2015)
