Total cholesterol and high density lipoprotein cholesterol as important predictors of erectile dysfunction.
Although erectile dysfunction is frequently seen in patients with manifestations of arteriosclerotic disease, the independent contribution of serum cholesterol in predicting erectile dysfunction is unclear.
The aim of this study was to examine the relation between serum cholesterol and erectile dysfunction.
Medical histories, physical examinations, and blood tests were obtained at Cooper Clinic, Dallas, Texas, from 3,250 men aged 26-83 years (mean, 51 years) without erectile dysfunction at their first visit, who had one more clinic visit, all between 1987 and 1991.
These men were followed 6-48 months after the first clinic visit (mean, 22 months).
Erectile dysfunction was reported in 71 men (2.2%) during follow-up.
