Prevalence of ED

Making an estimate of incidences of Erectile Dysfunction is difficult because of the variations in the individual cases. According to National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), incidences increase with age, a mere 5% among the 40 year old men experience impotence, however, the number shows an increase to 15 to 25% in case of men in their 60s. Transient ED and inadequate erection affect as many as 50% of men between the ages of 40 and 70.

ED is treatable at any age. Diseases like diabetes, kidney disease, alcoholism, atherosclerosis account for as many as 70% of chronic ED cases and psychological factors like stress, anxiety, and depression also account for 10–20% of cases. Between 35 and 50% of men with diabetes experience ED. Urologists who specialize in problems of urinary tract, traditionally treated ED. However, due to varied nature of causes of ED urologists accounted for only 25 percent of Viagra and ED mentions in 1999.

Useful Tip:
A prevalent misconception is that the sexual function wanes with age. However, it doesn’t have to be so. If conditions that potentially cause erectile dysfunction are curtailed, a man can have quality sex life well into his senior years. So, our advice is: see a doctor.
