Endothelial Dysfunction/Metabolic Syndrome
Endothelial dysfunction, injury or inflammation of the lining of the blood
vessels or atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), has been shown
to be linked to erectile dysfunction (ED). Within 10 years of developing
ED, about 10% of men will have a serious cardiovascular event and/or early
death. Assessment for endothelial health can cross several different specialties,
including bariatrics, cardiology, endocrinology, exercise physiology,
family medicine, internal medicine, neurology and sleep medicine.
