The older a person, the function of the organs was decreased. Then they are likely to experience erectile dysfunction (ED) even higher. But a new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that today more and more young people are diagnosed with Erectile Dysfunction.

During the Erectile Dysfunction is better known as a disorder experienced by older people. Statistically newfound prevalence of Erectile Dysfunction in men over the age of 40 years.

The new study, led by dr. Paolo Capogrossi of the University Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Italy have found the problem which is considered as a problem of older people proved more widely experienced by young people. Mekipun previous studies found DE experienced more young people due to psychological factors, but this study attempts to change.

Erectile Dysfunction is a condition of a man can not achieve or maintain an erection that is hard to penetrate during intercourse. Erectile Dysfunction can be an indicator of more serious health problems, such as heart disease or blood flow.

The researchers say, Erectile Dysfunction may be a reflection of the overall men's health. Because male erectile capacity associated with good blood flow to the genitals. So if the erection is not smooth, most likely there is a problem in the blood stream.

The main editor of The Journal of Sexual Medicine says Irwin Goldstein, clinical people who have Erectile Dysfunction at young age primarily caused by psychological factors that do not require a physical examination. But now we have to take into account the physical examination, especially the flow of blood to identify vascular disease.

"This is because the results are very relevant to men's health in general and long term," he said.

The research team analyzed the clinical data of 439 patients of all ages. A total of 140 patients aged 40 years or less. Participants are generally more easy healthy and free of disease than older participants. Then the participants underwent measurement of Erectile Dysfunction.

The result is one of the four patients aged less than 40 years old have Erectile Dysfunction. Even half of them experienced the severity of Erectile Dysfunctionare almost the same as older patients. Just as in the elderly, Erectile Dysfunction at the young age can also be an indication of the general health of the patient.

At a younger crowd, factors such as smoking and using drugs are the triggers they have Erectile Dysfunction. Thus the researchers conclude, cigarettes and drugs is closely linked to the risk of Erectile Dysfunction.
