There may be many reasons for impotence in young men. When young people often have symptoms of impotence, psychological stress is one of the most important factors, but it can also be attributed to smoking, drinking, eating and other bad lifestyles. However, more importantly, sometimes impotence may be caused by some diseases.
What diseases increase the risk of impotence?
Diabetes and impotence
Type 2 diabetes was formerly known as adult diabetes. However, in recent years, more and more young people suffer from this disease. Many men with diabetes sometimes have impotence in their lives. As men grow older, the risk will increase, but diabetes will seriously increase the risk of impotence in young men. Uncontrolled blood glucose levels can cause vascular and nerve damage, leading to impotence. If you already have diabetes, you need to check your blood sugar level through proper diet, regular exercise and medication.
2. Thyroid disease and impotence
The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate metabolism, but it also regulates sex hormones. If you have thyroid disease, especially hypothyroidism, the level of testosterone will decrease, which may lead to impotence. Treatment of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism can help to solve impotence.
3. Cardiovascular disease and impotence
Cardiovascular disease has occurred in men over 40 to 50 years old. Unfortunately, with the popularity of junk food in modern society, more and more young people also have cardiovascular problems. Due to arterial stenosis and hardening, cardiovascular disease can lead to impotence, thus reducing the flow of blood to the penis and other areas of the body. If you have impotence, it is also important for the doctor to check whether you have cardiovascular disease. Men with cardiovascular disease and impotence are also likely to suffer from heart disease.
4. Hypertension and impotence
Patients with hypertension may be more prone to impotence than ordinary people. Research shows that about two thirds of male patients with hypertension will have some degree of impotence. Persistent hypertension is believed to damage the blood supply of the penis, prevent its complete expansion, and make the penis unable to obtain sufficient blood supply. In addition to hindering the ability to erect, hypertension can also reduce sexual desire and prevent ejaculation. Drugs used to treat hypertension also have a negative effect on male erections, usually diuretics and β Receptor blockers can inhibit erection.
