Obesity and Erectile Dysfunction in Men ignorable on his age
takes a great risk to more serious diseases that spend extra toll
for their management and treatment. It is currently well known
that obesity is hazardous to Men's Health (Harvard Men's Health
Watch, 2011). Obesity relates to decrease level of blood serum
testosterone in men, lowering his sexual performance, prostate
health and possible occurrence of cardio-vascular disease (CVD).
The Asian men, Chinese in extreme, central obesity (men with
big abdomen) are no more likely a symbol for prosperity and
Men who are obese are more likely to have erectile
dysfunction (ED) than men with healthy weights.
Several studies also stated that infertility, BPH and prostate
cancer are prone in obese men. Hypogonadism in general occur
with progressing of age (LOH, Hypogonadism, ‘andropausal')
but may also be experienced in younger reproductive ages.
Unhealthy food (fast foods more likely), life style habits and
behavior (no or less exercise, smoking cigarettes, and alcoholism)
stimulate other risk factors to develop type-2 diabetes.
Hypertension, high cholesterol, high triglyceride with obesity
triggers to develop metabolic syndrome and the occurrence of
BMI, WC and "Apple-shaped" Obesity (Central Obesity)
can be clinically tested by physical means as well as by
symptomatically complaints that are supported by laboratorial
endocrine ex amination. Waist Circumference (WC)
measurement over 90 cm (Euripides 102 cm) and Body Mass
Index (BMI) over 25 (Euripides over 30) would raise more
chance to obesity. WC measurement should be more trustful
for those people categorized as normal or overweight people
in terms of BMI measurement (athlete with increases muscle
mass may have a BMI more than 25, making impressments as
to be overweight / obese on the BMI scale. In such case WC
measurement is a must to guide to the more exact diagnose for
overweight and obesity.
Prevent the preventable. Ageing (Progressing of age) and
the occurrence of central-obesity relate to decrease production
of blood serum levels. These conditions (Hypogonadism) can
be "reversed" by testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
Monitoring regular physical health examinations as well as
to plan opportunities for refreshment commitments may
minimized psychological and other psychical stress.
Avoid the inevitable by doing healthy life-style habits and
live-behavior (no smoking cigarettes, alcoholism, heavy meals,
restriction from fat, carbohydrate and fried diets). Refraining
to reach excessive prepared foods, frequent going-out to eat,
not visiting drive-through culinary outlets due to very busy
work schedules (current modern metro-life-style habits and
life-behavior). Avoid diversity stressful activities such as long
commutes and other commitments by unconsciously cutting the
time to do exercise and other physical activities that lead to the
tendency to gain weight.
