Your weight can be a definite factor in whether or not you could face sexual issues. Obesity is one of the fastest growing epidemics we face today. Obesity, has now reached epidemic proportions with over 18 million people around world wide due to cardiovascular and other diseases that are caused by or made worse as a direct result of obesity. In addition to this, almost eight out of every ten men who suffer from Impotence or erectile dysfunction are overweight, with obese males having a 30% higher chance of developing the condition than a man of normal weight.
Obesity in its nature is also a cardiovascular abnormality. Therefore it affects not only the cardiovascular system, it affects sex. More than half of all men over the age of 40 have some component of erectile dysfunction. The reason for this increase in risk is that obesity can be directly linked to the worsening and development of several physical conditions common amongst impotence suffers. These include diabetes mellitus of which four out of five impotent men suffer from; high blood pressure – many of the treatments used to control this are known to cause impotence; and cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis, which harden the blood vessels leading to reduced blood flow in the penis resulting in impotence. There are many good reasons to lose weight; for the happiness of both you and your partner, the possibility of eliminating impotence is surely one of them! Given the amount of social and media attention focusing on obesity now a days.
It’s common knowledge that this condition carries significant risks to health and longevity. On the bright side though, we can find numerous people who have turned their lives (including their sex lives!) around by combining positive thinking and sensible weight loss programs. Obesity is one of the fastest growing epidemics we face today. Countless studies show that obesity can increase the risk of many health complications, and erectile dysfunction is no exception. Men who are obese are much more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction than men of healthy weights. A sturdy cardiovascular system is vital for sexual function because erections depend on strong vascular blood flow. When a man is carrying excessive body fat there is pressure put on the vascular system therefore causing weaker blood flow and ultimately softer or non-existent erections.
The greater the level of obesity the greater the chance of erectile dysfunction, and at the same time the more exercise and healthy habits you add to your daily life the more likely you are to find relief of impotency. Fortunately, for those who had no serious health concerns, other than being excessively overweight, are often able to overcome their erectile dysfunction as they drop the extra pounds. A better sex life isn’t the only reason to drop the weight, even though it is a great motivator, but also dropping the weight can help prevent even more serious problems from forming.
