Developing a chronic disease often has a ripple effect. That is, one disease can bring on other medical problems. Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be collateral damage related to many other diseases, including:
- Cardiovascular disease - High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson's disease
This is only a partial list. What's more, medications commonly used to treat certain medical conditions may cause erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, erectile dysfunction usually responds well to treatment, regardless of the cause.
