Erectile dysfunction association with physical activity level and physical fitness in men aged 40–75 years

Abstract: The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between physical activity level and physical fitness with erectile dysfunction in men aged 40-75 years. We examined 180 men aged 40-75 years. The individuals were evaluated for age, presence of dyslipidemia and smoking and for anthropometric parameters for the characterization of body mass index. For assessing the level of physical fitness, a test was performed to measure the indirect maximum oxygen consumption. The evaluation of erectile function was made b… Show more

“…An observation by Derby et al (32) confirmed the influence of men’s physical activity on ED and stressed that it remains the only factor whose positive modification, even in mid-life, may reduce the risk of ED. Leisure-time physical activity also figures into physical capacity; both these factors, according to an observation by Agostini et al (33), are related to ED. Intensification of physical activity in the study group, as part of the cardiac rehabilitation treatment, had a beneficial effect on EQ assessed using the IIEF-5 questionnaire.…”

“…Knowledge that exercise early in life may modulate development of ED is important, such that patients can be evaluated and counseled appropriately. Recent data suggest that ED at a young age is highly correlated with increased cardiovascular morbidity [15]. In fact, a diagnosis of ED in men under 40 has been shown to increase the risk of ischemic heart disease, cardiac arrest, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, or coronary revascularization procedure with a higher standardized incidence ratio rate of 7.4–7.6 (a higher risk than that for men over 40 years old) when compared with a general population reference cohort [16].…”

“…Nesse contexto complexo, o exercício físico regular, com seus múltiplos efeitos, destaca-se como estratégia a ser considerada no tratamento da disfunção sexual, pois altera positivamente o funcionamento oxidativo das células e tecidos, aumentando os níveis de óxido nítrico que, por sua vez, aciona proteínas com função de reparo e prevenção de danos teciduais colaborando assim para melhora da função sexual, além dos seus efeitos psicológicos e sociais (maior autoestima, maior confiança no esforço físico, redução da ansiedade e depressão, maior convívio social etc.) 5,[32][33][34][35][36] . Dentre as modalidades de exercício físico, destaca--se a dança, que proporciona diversão, facilita a interação afetiva entre os parceiros 37 favorece uma interação social positiva 38 , tendo sido evidenciados benefícios na função endotelial, aptidão cardiorrespiratória 39,40 , consumo pico de oxigênio(VO2pico) 40,41 , equivalente ven- …”
