Erectile dysfunction is the inability of males to have a sexual arousal and failure to have an erection. Erectile dysfunction has been widely regarded as one of the most prominent and common causes for impotence. While talking about erectile dysfunction or impotence was a taboo until recently, fortunately males (and couples) have become more comfortable in discussing such issues with urologists. Lakeview Center of urology offers successful impotence treatment in Des Moines and other cities in Iowa with which you can get back your normal sex life.

Medically, erectile dysfunction or impotence is defined as a physiological and psychological disorder. However, there are more physiological causes and only a handful of psychological ones. Here we shall take a look at some common causes of erectile dysfunction and also a few which are not very prevalent but have been recorded in numerous cases.

Erectile dysfunction is most commonly caused by the lack of blood flow to the penile area. This can happen due to various reasons. Blood flow may be affected by narrowing of arteries. The most common reason for the narrowing of arteries and veins is smoking. Hence, smoking can be classified as a cause of erectile dysfunction from the perspective of one’s lifestyle. Vascular disease, a term used to imply arterial damage, narrowing or leakage can also be triggered by diabetes, high blood pressure and also high levels of cholesterol.

Although alcohol is not widely believed to cause permanent erectile dysfunction yet it does manage to affect penile strength and erection temporarily. Almost all banned drugs are considered to be causes of erectile dysfunction. Any addiction to drugs for a considerable amount of time can lead to erectile dysfunction.

There are several other health ailments that are causes of erectile dysfunction and the list includes kidney failure, neurologic conditions and venous problems. At times, erectile dysfunction may be an adverse effect of a surgery gone wrong and there are many antibiotic medicines that inhibit the growth of testosterone hormones which in consequence lead to erectile dysfunction.
