Erectile dysfunction could be an early warning sign of subclinical cardiovascular disease (CVD), especially in young men whose CVD risks aren’t steadily monitored, researchers reported in Vascular Medicine this December.

Subclinical CVD is an independent predictor of CVD events, first author Chukwuemeka U. Osondu, MD, MPH, and co-authors wrote in the study, and its absence is linked to minimal CVD risk, even in the presence of traditional symptoms. It shares a handful of risk factors with erectile dysfunction (ED), such as age, obesity and smoking status, and the conditions are thought to have shared mechanisms.
