New research found a relation between erectile dysfunction with man and heart trouble such as coronary artery disease. One of the first signs of blood vessel disease could be decreased blood flow to the penis which is manifested as less strong, weaker erection.

One of the recent reports from this research claimed that man with erectile dysfunction had worse results on exercise tests and other measures of coronary heart disease and they also had signs of coronary artery blockages.

Study found that erectile dysfunction was stronger risk factor for heart disease than high blood pressure, high cholesterol and stress. It also pointed out that even among man without heart trouble erectile dysfunction could be a predictor for heart attack in the future.

Erectile dysfunction isn’t always vascular in nature. Problem could be psychological or neurological and they aren't necessarily related to a higher risk of heart trouble.
