Your inbox is probably filled with “solutions” for men’s sexual dysfunction. However most of these fixes are surgical or pharmacological. Drugs often have nasty side effects. Men with some conditions are not able to take most classes of sexual dysfunction drugs.

PRP is a game changer. It is a non-surgical , non-prescription drug treatment that is highly effective. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This FDA approved therapy uses your own blood to rejuvenate your cells. The first step is to collect a sample of your blood. Your blood is processed through a centrifuge where its natural healing properties are enhanced. The blood is further processed into an injectable gel. The gel is then injected painlessly injected into trouble areas that are causing the sexual dysfunction.

WHAT IS ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION OR ED?

Erectile Dysfunction, sometimes called ‘impotence’, is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. The word ‘impotence’ may also be used to describe other problems that interfere with sexual intercourse and reproduction, such as lack of sexual desire and problems with ejaculation or orgasm. Using the term erectile dysfunction makes it clear that those other problems are not involved.

Damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues, often as a result of a disease, is the most common cause of erectile penile dysfunction.  Diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, chronic alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, vascular disease, and neurological disease, account for about 70 percent of erectile dysfunction cases. Between 35 and 50 percent of men with diabetes, experience erectile dysfunction.

WHAT CAUSES ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?

Defects preventing an appropriate erectile tissue response can interfere with reproductive capability. Erection of the penis is a hemodynamic action that tissue of the corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum. This tissue consists of smooth muscle, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, and nerves that interact in order to enhance and maintain an accessory blood supply causing erection. Given the need for the blood flow during this response, it is clear that vascular insufficiency can decrease erectile capability.

In fact, vascular insufficiency may be a common pathology of erectile dysfunction.

It is estimated that up to 80% of the cases of erectile dysfunction can be attributed at least in part to a reduced blood flow, typically due to an underlying vascular disease.

Pharmacological methods have been used to treat erectile dysfunction including the use of vasodilators. Such vasodilators include Viagra and Cialis. However, vasodilators induce only a temporary response and are not effective in many patients due to the underlying endothelial damage. Not to mention the fact that these medicines can have serious side-effects including heart attack, stroke and may even cause death.

Treatments like EDRx Shot Procedures that address tissue defects and/or vascular disease aspects of erectile dysfunction may provide a longer-term therapy or even provide a permanent effect in comparison to other treatments.

IS ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION RELATED TO DIABETES?

Erectile dysfunction is significantly common in men who have diabetes which damages nerves and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction can also be linked to other conditions common in men who have diabetes, such as high blood pressure and coronary artery disease. ED is three times more common in patients with diabetes mellitus. ED in diabetes strongly correlates with the level of glucose control, duration of disease and diabetic complications.
