Despite the fact that men are traditionally considered the stronger sex, some medical data prove the opposite. According to modern data, the male sex is inferior to the female sex both in terms of duration and quality of life. Among men, the pathology of the heart and blood vessels, as well as oncological diseases, is much more common. Another real and exclusively male medical problem is erectile dysfunction, which occurs for many physiological and pathological reasons.
Features of fitness of men over 50 years
Every man who has reached the age of 45-50 years should pay more attention to his reproductive health, since its deterioration affects not only his sexual life, but also threatens the development of serious diseases.
The male reproductive system is a rather complex mechanism, in which the organs of the small pelvis, nerve plexuses, arterial and venous vessels and endocrine glands are involved. Therefore, the” failure ” of at least one connector leads to a malfunction of the entire system.
Features of chronic diseases affecting erectile function
Aging, bad habits, poor nutrition, occupational hazards and, of course, genetic predisposition – all this provokes the development of chronic somatic pathology with age.
The most common diseases and conditions that occur in men and negatively affect potency:
- hypertonic disease;
- peripheral atherosclerosis;
- chronic stress
- pathology of the prostate gland;
- venereal diseases;
- bad habits.
