Fox 5, 4:53, 05/04/2011

Dr. David Samadi discusses erectile dysfunction (ED), treatment methods, and the condition's link to cardiovascular disease on Fox 5's Good Day New York.

Erectile dysfunction is no longer seen as a separate condition that is treated individually. Its presence can signal reason to be concerned about heart disease, especially in younger men who are showing symptoms of early-onset erectile dysfunction. One main cause of ED is restriction of blood flow to the penis, which can be caused by atherosclerosis, or buildup of plaque in the arteries. This is a severe vascular disease that, if left untreated, can cause a heart attack or stroke.

Dr. Samadi suggests that if ED is present that patients talk to their doctors about their heart health. In many cases making positive changes to diet, exercise, and lifestyle can improve a man's erectile dysfunction.

Once those causes are ruled out, treatments can be provided to help with ED such as Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. Viagra and Levitra are short acting medications that stay in the body for about 4 hours, while Cialis is a long acting medication. A new daily version of Cialis is also available.

Dr. Samadi warns that the foods you eat can affect the efficacy of these medications, especially Viagra and Levitra. Fatty foods will reduce absorption of the medication into the body. For best results these medications should not be taken with food. Because Cialis stays in the body for a much longer period of time this is not as much of a concern.
