So you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction symptoms and don’t know what to do. The good news is that this medical condition is completely reversible and treatable. Nearly 30 million American men suffer from ED. This can happen at any age; however, it is more common in men ages 65 and older. The term itself can be misleading as the condition typically arises because of a hormonal imbalance and not a dysfunction of a body part. Erectile dysfunction, in general, can be caused by obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, certain prescription medications, and more. For many men, erectile dysfunction can be the first sign of something more serious. This makes seeing a medical professional that much more important.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. It is also sometimes also referred to as impotence. Here are few of the symptoms:
Discuss any medical conditions that you may have with your doctor. Sharing your medical history with a doctor can help him or her determine what is causing your impotence.
Andropause is a contributing factor to erectile dysfunction in many men. This male version of menopause causes changes in one’s hormone levels. Many men going through andropause will experience dips in testosterone in their bodies. When a hormone is deficient, it will affect all the other hormones. This chain reaction will cause several different symptoms and conditions even related to hormonal imbalances in the body.
Our physicians at Sculpted MD will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your health as a whole. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all solution to your erectile dysfunction issue. ED treatment combines a variety of therapies including nutrition, fitness, and hormone replacement therapy options. It’s important to understand that erectile dysfunction is not a normal part of aging that a man has to accept. Testosterone and hormone replacement therapy can help to restore both sexual performance and function.
The first step to the process is to have a consultation with a physician at Sculpted MD. During this time period, the doctor will discuss your current symptoms, your medical history, your lifestyle, and other concerns. A quick medical exam will also be conducted. All of this information will help them to determine whether or not hormone replacement therapy is for you.
If it is determined that you are going to move forward and are a candidate for hormone replacement, a blood sample will be taken. This sample will test your hormone levels and will be used during the next step in the process, your treatment plan.
After we review your lab results, we can create a medical treatment plan that will work for you. You will receive your prescribed medication as well as your treatment schedule. Your treatment plan will begin that day. Call us today at Sculpted MD to schedule your free consultation for hormone replacement and erectile dysfunction.
