Are You At Risk Of Erectile Dysfunction?

Cialis, an FDA approved drug used for the treatment of sexual dysfunction has helped improve the sexual performance of a lot of men. However, even if there is Cialis or any of its competitors, it is still important for males who do not suffer from erectile dysfunction to be informed about who is most at risk of becoming impotent.
The journal Sleep released a study in January 2010 regarding the association of restless leg syndrome to the development of ED. The study involved over 20, 000 men with an average age of 69. Out of this number, 4% had RLS and out of the 4%, over 40% had ED. This means that older men especially those who suffer from RLS are more at risk in developing the condition compared to their peers who don't have RLS.
It is also interesting that according to another study, those who suffer from RLS are usually Caucasian. This led the scientific community to believe that older Caucasian males are more at risk of being impotent compared for example to their Asian counterparts. African American men on the other hand also have a high risk of developing the problem. Diabetes, a known contributor to having ED, afflicts African Americans more than their white counterparts. Studies show that African Americans are likely to suffer from diabetes 27% higher than men who do not belong to the group. So far however, there aren't any studies done to compare men coming from a different race in terms of ED risks.
It's not just your skin color that can make you more prone to becoming impotent or not experiencing this at all though, because in another recent study, males who need to take several types of medication are also at risk of developing sexual dysfunction. A man's age also plays an important role but apart from this, his BMI or body mass index should also be taken into consideration since obesity can also cause ED among other conditions.
If you do not want to get ED or feel that you might already have it, visit your doctor and ask if you can get a Cialis prescription. Cialis is a very effective drug that aids in maintaining a strong erection.
