Erectile Dysfunction and Heart Disease

To schedule a HeartSaver CT, call 512-407-SAVE.


Men experiencing ED are nearly twice as likely to have a heart attack or die from heart problems within five years. Fortunately, one of the best ways to detect heart disease – even before there are symptoms – is with the HEARTSAVER CT, a quick, easy screening tool. So if you have ED, you’ve already had your wake-up call. Answer it. And make sure you’ll be around to enjoy the life you’ve built.


“Erectile dysfunction can be a wake-up call that you are at risk for heart disease. The same factors that contribute to heart disease can cause erectile dysfunction, but the symptoms of erectile dysfunction usually come first.”

Stanley Wang, MD, JD, MPH
Cardiologist


Studies show that symptoms of erectile dysfunction arise up to 36 months before symptoms of heart disease. Recognizing this early warning sign may allow for the diagnosis and treatment of undetected heart disease before it causes problems.

Break the Code of Silence

Erectile dysfunction may not be life-threatening, but it may be the first symptom of deadly heart disease. In some cases, treating heart disease may also improve erectile dysfunction. If you have experienced erectile dysfunction, consult with your physician to determine if cardiovascular screenings are appropriate for you.

Screening for Heart Disease

HeartSaver CT® is a non-invasive screening tool used to detect heart disease long before symptoms are present. It is a painless procedure that takes only minutes to complete. Click here to make a HeartSaver CT® appointment today.
