Experts from the prestigious Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) have done a research that proves that loss in libido or lack of urge to have sexual intercourse is also a symptom of heart problems besides angina or heart pain.
Experts say that if a person faces the problem of erecticle dysfunction he must go for a good cardiac check-up to rule out the chance of fat deposition in the heart.
According to noted Urologist Professor Rakesh Kapoor of SGPGI, "erectile dysfunction is also due to cardiac problems. One of the reasons of erectile dysfunction is fat deposition in arteries of the penis. As a result of this sometimes long manipulation by a female partner fails to make the penis taut."
If there is fat deposit in the penis then there are chances of fat deposit in the heart arteries as well. If a wife fails to make the penis of her husband erect despite persistent manipulation and massage she must take him to a cardiac expert because fat deposits at one place are a sign of fat deposit in some other place too. Fat deposit in arteries causes low blood flow in penis as well.
Erectile dysfunction could be psychological and pathological but could also indicate well in advance that the person could be suffering from heart problem
The condition in medical terms is called Artherosclerosis. There are many causes of Artherosclerosis but it is mainly caused by heart problems.
Doctors say it is not a rule that erectile dysfunction could be due to heart problems. But a person facing from such issues should go for a check up by cardiologists and urologists. Wives should not scorn at their husbands but should help them.
Often nourishing and fibre-rich food and low amount of fat intake, some exercises and jogging could avoid the situation too.
