Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) refers to a men’s health issue in which men have difficulty or are often incapable of getting and maintaining an erection. Erectile dysfunction can significantly impact your sex life if you avoid treatment.

With proper medical attention, you can find practical solutions to your erectile dysfunction.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

A variety of factors contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction. Generally, a combination of psychological issues and health issues cause erectile dysfunction.

For instance, if you’re having trouble maintaining an erection by yourself or with your partner, you might be experiencing too much anxiety to perform correctly. However, if you can’t get an erection regardless of the situation, an underlying health condition might be at the root of your erectile dysfunction.

Any of the following conditions can cause erectile dysfunction.

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Depression
  • Hypertension
  • Prostate cancer
  • Low testosterone (low-T)
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Anxiety

During your appointment at Weight Loss and Vitality, your doctor helps you determine the exact cause of your symptoms and recommends targeted treatment accordingly.

How do you treat erectile dysfunction?

Your doctor at Weight Loss and Vitality first starts by discussing your symptoms at-length. If your erectile dysfunction is due to a medical condition, your doctor might recommend addressing the condition before starting erectile dysfunction-specific treatment.

In most cases, physicians prescribe antidepressants and Viagra® to treat erectile dysfunction. The team at Weight Loss and Vitality believes that this type of treatment only solves symptoms, not underlying causes. Weight Loss and Vitality’s treatments of choice for erectile dysfunction include PDE-5 medications (Viagra, Cialis), trimix, bimix, and optimized testosterone levels through testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

What is testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy helps you restore proper testosterone levels through injections, patches, pellets, and more.

TRT can significantly boost your energy and mood, as well as your libido and metabolism. You should ask your doctor at Weight Loss and Vitality about how TRT can increase your quality of life and reduce your risk of heart disease.

While testosterone replacement therapy does have some possible side effects, most of these side effects are dosage-related. Your doctor monitors your progress throughout the treatment to avoid any unexpected and unwanted complications.

Don’t let erectile dysfunction determine the terms of your sex life. Schedule an appointment with Weight Loss and Vitality today by phone or online.
