Kidney disease and Levitra


Your health could be seriously impaired if your kidneys are ever affected as they are vital organs in your body. Under the best circumstances, the problems can be treated in a way that preserves the kidneys. But there are times when surgery is required. This comes both as a treatment of your body and as a donor to save another’s life. The issue which has been addressed in some recent research is the difference in the effect on health between surgery that simply removed a part of one kidney, so-called kidney-sparing surgery, and the removal of an entire kidney. If you are diagnosed with a disease such as renal cell carcinoma, the temptation is to think it better to remove the kidney affected. But, with good technique, it’s actually possible only to cut away the damaged area, leaving only the healthy behind. Why should this be desirable?


A suggestion that by removing an entire kidney it could possibly induce erectile dysfunction came as an answer from a new study at the University of California. This was a cohort analysis of some 400 men over a period of six years. Among those who had total removal, the chances of erectile dysfunction were 3.5 times greater than among those who only had a partial removal. Put another way, the more kidney that remains to provide a filtration system for the body, the healthier the body. If one kidney is removed, even for the best of reasons including the preservation of your life or as a donor to save another’s life, the removal significantly increases the risks of osteoporosis and both metabolic and heart disease. It also reduces the overall quality of life.


We also need to be clear that if the cause of the erectile dysfunction is the removal of one kidney, Levitra is not going to help resolve the loss of sexual function. You must remember that Levitra is designed to do one thing, and one thing only, namely to encourage the penile artery to dilate and contract at the right times. If the cause of the erectile dysfunction lies elsewhere, the drug will not help.
