What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction, commonly called ED, occurs when you lack the ability to get or sustain an erection strong enough for sex. You might also have reduced sexual desire. Erectile dysfunction can develop for a variety of reasons, including aging and stress. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with ED. 

See Dr. Streeter at the first sign of a problem. He listens to your concerns and does more than just offer you a blue pill. 

What are the risk factors for erectile dysfunction?

Common factors that increase your risk of ED include:

  • Aging
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes and other chronic conditions
  • Smoking
  • Drinking in excess 
  • Drug use
  • Ongoing stress
  • Relationship struggles
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Low testosterone 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Weight challenges
  • Some medications 
  • Injuries 
  • Prostate surgery
  • Radiation treatment  

Adopting healthy habits is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of erectile dysfunction. Maintain a healthy body weight, eat nutritious foods, get regular exercise, and keep stress levels low. Don’t smoke or drink alcohol in excess and properly manage your chronic disease if you have one.

How does my doctor diagnose ED?

Dr. Streeter can diagnose erectile dysfunction after discussing your symptoms with you. To find possible root causes, he reviews your medical history, including medical diagnoses, medications, and past surgeries.

Dr. Streeter completes a thorough physical exam and may order blood tests, urine tests, ultrasounds, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out underlying medical problems. 

What is the treatment for erectile dysfunction? 

Dr. Streeter personalizes each erectile dysfunction treatment to match your needs, preferences, and lifestyle. 

Alma Duo™ is a 15-minute in-office treatment that uses low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy to stimulate penile blood flow and restore sexual performance naturally. There are no pills, topical anesthesia, needles, or surgery needed when choosing Alma Duo procedures. Your results often last at least two years.

Additional ED treatment options include injections, medication, suppositories, hormone therapy, lifestyle changes, surgery, and other treatments for underlying causes of erectile dysfunction.
