There are now a number of studies that suggest a link between erectile dysfunction and obesity. By maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly, you may be able to prevent erectile dysfunction or improve the condition.
Recent studies have shown that overweight men with excess fat in the stomach and waist have lower male sex hormone levels than men who are not overweight. Men with excess body fat break down male hormones faster than do leaner men. This may be another reason why obese men suffer from ED at higher rates than lean men.
Like the stock market and foreign-car engines, erections are mysterious things that seem to have a mind of their own. When they don’t happen, it can be hard (so to speak) to figure out why. But these answers should help.
Exercise regularly. Regular exercise may reduce the risk of ED. Choose exercises that you enjoy. In addition to reducing the risk of ED, exercise also can help you manage stress. Check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.
