Sexual dysfunction really has a stigma surrounding it, with most men not even wanting to admit there’s a problem. This was further evidenced by some recent research discussed in an article in The Telegraph entitled, “Men’s health: dealing with erectile dysfunction”. While this research is focused in Britain, the results are pretty clear, specifically, men go to doctors twenty percent less of the time than do women.
This frustrates doctors because many men can be treated for ED with a variety of methods, including the Boston Method from Boston Medical Group. Another thing that both worries and frustrates doctors is that ED can be a common symptom of larger ailments, such as prostate cancer or other prostate-related problems. Another symptom doctors are being urged to look for with more regularity is testosterone deficiency, as this can not only cause ED, but apparently men with lower testosterone levels have a higher risk of dying from heart disease than men with higher testosterone levels.
“Sadly, the stereotype is true: Men are much too casual about, and disinterested in, their own health.” says Eric Klein, MD in his article on EveryDayHealth.com. *
Doctors encourage men to seek help as soon as they think there is a problem with their health, as well as taking a serious look at their lifestyle. If your erectile dysfunction is caused by psychological conditions like depression or anxiety, or physical conditions, many times help is available in the form of medicine, counseling and so on. Boston Medical Group is just one of many options available, but in terms of physical remedies, it’s one of the safest around.
Visits to Boston Medical Group are by appointment only. Patients will meet in privacy and confidentiality with a male doctor who is fully certified to treat men’s sexual dysfunctions.
