Cholesterol-lowering drugs may help men with erectile dysfunction

Asian News International


Washington, March 30 (ANI): A new study has revealed that cholesterol-lowering drugs may help men with erectile dysfunction.

The researchers found that statins are associated with a significant improvement in erectile function by helping blood vessels dilate properly and improving vascular blood flow to the penis.

John B. Kostis, M.D., director of the Cardiovascular Institute, said that the increase in erectile function scores with statins was approximately one-third to one-half of what has been reported with drugs like Viagra, Cialis or Levitra.

However, Kostis added that larger randomized controlled trials are needed to further investigate the link between statin therapy and erectile function.

The study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. (ANI)
