New studies have revealed a correlation between erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular disease, recommending those suffering from erectile dysfunction also get tested for CVD. Online USA Doctors offers in-home doctor consultations as a less expensive alternative to costly doctor’s office visits.

San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/24/2015 -- New reports suggest an intimate relationship between erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular disease, estimating that over 1 million serious events like heart attack and stroke can be prevented over a 20 year span, simply by screening men who have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction for cardiovascular disease also.

The correlation between erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular disease is actually quite intuitively derived, as the risk of both rises with symptoms like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity. This examination of the link between erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular disease was recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, and focusses mainly on the cost analysis of screening men for cardiovascular disease who are already undergoing treatment for erectile dysfunction. The study's author estimates that "If all men presenting with [erectile dysfunction] were screened for [cardiovascular disease], 5.8 million men with previously unknown CVD risk factors would be identified over 20 years… 1.1 million cardiovascular events would be avoided, saving $21.3 billion over 20 years. Similarly, 1.1 million cases of ED would be treated, saving $9.7 billion. Together, the reduction in acute CVD and ED treatment cost would save $28.5 billion over 20 years."

While the findings may be difficult for some to fully digest, the short and long of it is that men who are currently exhibiting signs of erectile dysfunction should also be checked for cardiovascular disease, as it will save both time and money, as well as prevent over a million men who suffer from this ailment from suffering serious repercussions associated with cardiovascular disease.

The question that inevitably arises for many men, is where to seek treatment for erectile dysfunction, especially finding a treatment option that is more cost effective than walking in to a doctor's office.
