Men out there: if you have erectile dysfunction – or ED – there’s probably one thing on your mind: how to treat it.
Hi, I’m Dr. Griffin Rodgers, bringing you “Healthy Moments” from the NIH. I’m the Director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
While medical conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, and heart disease can cause ED, making healthy lifestyle changes may help you regain sexual function. These may include:
- quitting tobacco
- drinking less alcohol
- increasing physical activity
- and losing weight
Your doctor may also recommend treatments for ED such as:
- medications or devices to increase blood flow
- counseling to help reduce stress
- or surgery to reconstruct arteries, or to implant a device
And for more information, visit our website at NIDDK, or MyMajicDC.com . This is Dr. Griffin Rodgers. Join me next week for more “Healthy Moments.”
