Do you believe you may be suffering from some of the effects of erectile dysfunction? Boston Medical Group wants to stress that you are not alone.
We’re not sure you are aware of this, but according to studies that have been conducted by the National Institutes of Health, there may be as many as 30 million men in the United States who are afflicted with the condition of erectile dysfunction, and that is on a chronic basis. We can guarantee that if you had a discussion with your friends about this, no one would come up with that kind of number.
Although ED is not automatically associated with aging males, the statistics demonstrate that as you get older, the chances of experiencing erectile dysfunction do indeed increase.
Just take a look: chronic erectile dysfunction affects approximately 4% of men who are in their 50s. That is a relatively low number, but it multiplies as men get older. When they are in their 60s, the figure jumps to 17%, and it is 47% for men who are in their 70s.
The point of speaking in these terms is to stress that something that is so widespread, and which will become more common in individuals as time progresses, should not be a “closet” affliction. It deserves attention and treatment, and people should not be shy about seeking it.
