Erectile dysfunction triggers mortality risk

By safehandsclinic on Jun 26, 2020

Men who are at greater risk of death irrespective of their testosterone, researchers say, are suffering from sexual disorders or erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is a form of sexual dysfunction that is characterized by its inability, during sexual activity, to produce or sustain the penile erection.

"Further cardiovascular risk and death can result from sexual symptoms at the front-end, as both low testosterone and vascular disease can affect erectile function," said Leen Antonio from KU Leuven-University Hospitals in Belgium.

Low testosterone concentrations were associated with a higher death risk in middle-aged and older men, but the findings are inconsistent in broad studies, the researchers said.

Sexual dysfunction was also associated with mortality in older people.

The new research used the European Male Ageing Research (EMAS) results, a broad study
that explored hormonal changes linked to age and a wide range of health factors outcomes in elderly men.

In five medical centers, the researchers analyzed data from 1,913 participants.

At the beginning of the research, they examined how their hormone and sex-role contributed to their lives more than 12 years later. 483 people – 25 percent – died during their 12.4-year average follow-up period.

The presence of sexual symptoms, particularly erectile dysfunction, increased the risk of death in men without such symptoms by 51% in men with normal total testosterone levels.

Erectile dysfunction
People with low total testosterone levels and sexual symptoms have a higher death risk than people with average testosterone production and without sexual symptoms, according to the study. People with erectile dysfunction, weak erection in the morning and low libido had a higher risk of mortality than people without sexual symptoms.

The risk of dying was approximately 1.8 times higher in men with these three sexual symptoms than in men without any symptoms. According to researchers, the probability of dying was 1.4 times higher for people with erectile dysfunction than for people with erectile dysfunction.
