Erectile dysfunction: Impotence Rates More than Doubled in Last 25 Years

New data published by researchers from Kings College London shows up to up to half of men under 50 suffer from erectile dysfunction which is more than double the rate of impotence just 25 years ago.

The team of researchers evaluated data from more than a dozen studies around the world, that included tens of thousands of participants ranging in age from late teens to adults in their 80s.

The data from the combined studies showed that up to 50 percent of men under the age of 50 while one study conducted in Brazil found the condition occurred in almost 36 percent of men between the ages of 18 and 25, and almost 31 percent of men between the ages of 26 and 40.

Researchers estimate by the year 2025, more than 322 million men will be affected by erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and/or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Persistent erectile dysfunction can affect a man’s self-confidence and cause stress both internally and in a relationship. The Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica, uses mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is a result of inadequate blood flow to the penis an can be an early warning sign for underlying health conditions including; cardiovascular disease, dementia, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and early death.

Common physical conditions that can cause erectile dysfunction:

Stem Cell Therapy for the Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

Stem cell therapy at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute can improve the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Stem cell therapy can also treat many of the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis

Stem cells are a type of undifferentiated cell that have the ability to differentiate, or change, into specific and specialized cell types.

Stem cells can be guided into becoming a specific type of cell allowing physicians trained in the field of regenerative medicine to use stem cells to repair diseased or damage tissue.

Stem cells are attracted to the site of injury and then change into the type of cell that is needed to repair or heal the damaged tissue.

Because erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, it is important to see a healthcare professional for a thorough health evaluation.

Costa Rica has one of the best healthcare systems in the world and is ranked among the highest for medical tourism. Using the most advanced technologies, the team of experts at The Stem Cells Transplant Institute believes in the potential of stem cell therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. We are committed to providing personalized service and the highest quality of care to every patient.
