Hormonal disorders. With these words, men immediately think of testosterone, but about 90% of cases of hormonal impotence are caused by diabetes. According to one theory, maintaining normal blood sugar levels prevents both impotence and other complications of diabetes (eye and kidney damage). Strict sugar control requires strict adherence to the diet, maintaining a normal weight and, if necessary, several insulin injections per day. Complications of diabetes are irreversible, so everyone, having learned his diagnosis, should immediately take the measures described.
Other hormonal disorders (lack of testosterone and other hormones as a result of diseases of the thyroid gland and the pituitary gland) not only affect the erection, but also reduce sexual desire. Other physiological causes of impotence. There are many such reasons, but they are rare. Thus, 50% of patients who need hemodialysis suffer from impotence, but in most of them the function is restored after a successful kidney transplant.
A full erection requires relatively normal functioning of certain organs, so victims of serious chronic diseases such as cirrhosis of the liver or cancer experience marked difficulties. There are also violations after heart attacks, but this happens rather as a result of medication and stress. Men with high blood pressure often worry about this, but hypertension itself does not lead to impotence. Psychogenic causes. Severe depression or stress are the main causes of psychogenic impotence. Depressed patients lose the ability to enjoy, and this is a powerful barrier to erectile function. Such people lose their self-esteem and hope for the future, are convinced that they, they say, deserve their humiliation and in any case cannot change their attitude towards life. Suffering from other serious mental illnesses (schizophrenics and maniacs) confuse others and attract the attention of doctors, but you cannot call them depressed. Depression is a painful and depressing condition, sometimes even more dangerous for life, as it can lead to suicide.
Many consider depression to be an excellent example of a purely emotional disorder, and they believe that it should be treated with kindness and psychotherapy, not medication. This opinion is wrong. Serious mental disorders are in fact brain diseases. Traditional psychotherapy in such situations acts poorly. The best results are achieved when using drugs and electric shock.
Doctors no longer conclude that every impotent who is anxious or afraid should blame these feelings for their problems. Both anxiety and fear can cause impotence itself . In addition, increased anxiety is a normal condition for some people. It is not difficult to convince them of anything, precisely because of their tendency to intense experiences. Every man under the influence of stress can temporarily become impotent, but in order for this condition to manifest itself regularly or become permanent, serious misfortunes, loss of work, a major family conflict, etc. are needed.
People who consider sex a daily duty, and not the joy of life, also risk falling into trouble. Impotence is often affected by very religious people, as well as abused and men with distorted ideas about their sexual capabilities. Some men initially did not show much interest in sex, but refraining from intercourse is not a disease, unless the person himself is spiritually suffering from this. And finally, there are men who need non-traditional sexual relationships: some homosexuals (active), coming into contact with a woman, turn out to be impotent.
What else weakens the male power
Flu does not pass without a trace for men. This is true?

But with adenoma, bladder cancer is much less common.
