Men's Health September 05, 2014
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common men’s health condition that becomes more prevalent with age. While many men with ED do not wish to openly talk about this important health concern with friends and family, or sometimes even their doctor, ED can strongly impact a man’s quality of life.

According to Northwestern Medicine® urologist Christopher M. Gonzalez, MD, MBA, FACS, while men can easily be treated for ED, there are many other health concerns that can often play a role in its cause. These potentially contributing factors include smoking, obesity and a lack of exercise, all of which can be reduced through lifestyle changes in order to help treat ED and improve overall health.
