What is erectile dysfunction?

He works diligently to help improve his patient’s sexual health. When you’re worried about erectile dysfunction symptoms, schedule an appointment to learn more about ED treatment in Little Rock, AR.

Causes of erectile dysfunction

Male sexual arousal is a process that involves different parts of the body. Ultimately, erectile dysfunction can result from a problem anywhere in the body. Stress and/or mental health problems can also cause or worsen erectile dysfunction symptoms.

Some common causes of erectile dysfunction include:

  • Low testosterone

  • High blood pressure

  • High cholesterol

  • Heart disease

  • Diabetes

  • Obesity

  • Certain prescription medications

  • Alcoholism

  • Tobacco use

  • Sleep disorders

What age can erectile dysfunction start?

While it’s possible to experience mild or occasional erectile dysfunction at any age, it is more common in men 50 years and older. Older men are more likely to have health conditions that require medication that can interfere with proper erectile function. Ultimately, there are no erectile dysfunction age limits as these symptoms can happen to any man at any stage of life.

How cell regenerative therapy works

Cell regeneration therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that is both safe and effective. Not only does it help increase blood flow, but it helps with erectile tissue growth too. Diseased and damaged cells are restored into new healthy cells. These cells are injected directly into the tissue. The entire injection procedure takes about three hours. If you’re feeling anxious about treatment, we can give you nitrous oxide to help you feel comfortable during treatment. To maintain your results, you should have follow-up appointments. Because it will take some time for cells to regenerate and replace damaged ones, you may not see results for at least a few weeks.

Ways to prevent erectile dysfunction

When it comes to preventing erectile dysfunction from occurring, or even reoccurring, Dr. Hashmi makes these lifestyle suggestions:

  1. Quit smoking: Smoking is linked to both heart and blood vessel disease, which can cause erectile dysfunction.

  2. Lose weight: This can lead to the development of diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, all of which can cause ED.

  3. Limit alcohol: Alcohol affects how your blood flows and increases blood pressure, which are two main causes of erectile dysfunction.

  4. Avoid illegal drugs: Some illegal drugs prevent you from being aroused or sustaining an erection.
