According to recent research released by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Erectile Dysfunction can be a factor that predicts cardiovascular disease beyond the traditional risk factors.   Could you be at more risk of heart disease and heart attacks if you’re experiencing the symptoms of male impotence?

Can ED Predict Heart Disease?This study comprised of 1,709 men aged 40 to 70 who reported instances of Cardiovascular Disease with an average of 11.7 years in follow up.   The results showed that of the 261 new cases of Cardiovascular Disease occurred during these 11.7 years that ED and CVD are clearly associated, however, other factors related to CVD were just as reliable.

The study concludes that while ED holds a significant association to future heart problems, it’s not a better predictor than the traditional methods.    It does not predict more accurately or more effectively than the Framingham risk score, a traditional method used to predict heart disease.
