How do other illnesses affect penis disorders?

Some illnesses may actually cause penis disorders. Chronic illnesses that affect blood pressure, such as heart disease or diabetes, can lead to blood flow issues in the penis and cause penis disorders. Other diseases that affect the nerves, such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease, may also cause penis disorders. Infections that affect other areas of the body may also affect the penis. Illnesses may also indirectly lead to penis disorders if they're treated with certain medications.
