One of the best things men can do to reduce ED is to quit smoking. Smoking leads to cardiovascular disease, which can cause erectile dysfunction. In addition to affecting a man’s blood vessels, smoking itself increases his risk of ED. .

Vardenafil (Levitra) is structurally similar to sildenafil but far more biochemically potent. That means you can take lower doses (commonly, 10 milligrams versus 50 with sildenafil) with less risk of side effects and still enjoy similar results.

Medications, such as treatment for high blood pressure, can also play a role. These drugs reduce blood pressure by reducing blood flow, which can affect erections. It is not recommended that men stop their blood pressure medications, of course. But some patients can eliminate their need for the treatment through changes in diet and exercise.
Since then, it's been discovered that men can benefit from these exercises to improve erectile function, and they are now recommended by a range of medical associations and experts for people developing ED.
The key to all of this is the endothelium, the inner lining of blood vessels that helps blood flow smoothly. Regular exercise has been shown to improve the way the endothelium works. The endothelium lines the blood vessels in the heart and the penis, explains Dr. Hellstrom, but the blood vessels in the penis are about one-third the size of those in the heart. So if you fail to have erections due to vascular problems, that indicates that you’re at risk for heart problems as well.
You will also be asked a detailed past medical and surgical history as you may have other medical conditions which may be contributing to your erectile dysfunction.
