With atherosclerosis, cholesterol builds up in the blood vessel walls and forms plaques, which make the vessels narrow and slow blood flow. When plaque becomes very advanced, it can completely stop blood flow, which is what happens in a heart attack or clot. This is why it is very important to follow up ED Cialis pills Canada with tests for any heart issues.

Current thinking is that atherosclerosis affects people differently, but it often affects erectile function first (endothelial dysfunction), then the heart and brain, and the legs last. The smaller arteries in the body, such as in your Dick, are the first to get plugged up. Treating atherosclerosis involves diet, exercise and medications, if necessary. So, talk with your Doctor about a broken sex life, and you might be able to prevent a broken heart. Now, if atherosclerosis is so important, what causes it? Mr Dickxy has done the research as always. Here is a familiar list:

– High blood pressure
– Diabetes not the Perfect Storm again?
– High cholesterol
– Being overweight
– Lack of physical activity
– Cigarette smoking
– Age (generally > 45 years)
– Family history of heart disease (generally father or brother diagnosed before 55 years of age; mother or sister before 65).

Apart from the genetic stuff, it seems like most of the bad effects on Mr. Heart have something to do with Lifestyle and Nutrition. Hence I recommend Step 6 to everyone irrespective of the primary source of ED. The good news is that sexual activity is recommended for a healthy heart and non strenuous sexual activity is highly recommended for patients with heart issues.
