Issues with ED

Carolyn Magner | June 01, 2010

Steps you can take toward preventing erectile dysfunction and also improving your overall health.

• Stop smoking.

• Exercise regularly.

• Maintain a healthy weight.

• Review your medications with your doctor and ask about possible substitutions for those that may cause or exacerbate ED (never stop or change a medication without first talking to your doctor).

• Take prescribed medications as directed.

• Avoid excessive use of alcohol (more than two drinks a day).

• Avoid the use of illegal drugs.

• If you have a chronic illness such as diabetes or kidney disease, follow your doctor’s guidelines to keep these conditions in control.
