The Unsung Health Benefit Of Viagra

INTRODUCTION
Are you sick of the subject yet? Here’s another story about Viagra, but this one has nothing to do with lawsuits or sexual performance. Actually, new research finds impotence drugs, like Viagra, may actually have life-saving effects on men.

DEAN EDELL, M.D.
“It is a drug that’s triggered hundreds of jokes and headlines – and hundreds of thousands of serious requests. There has never been a drug launched with so much hype and hoopla as Viagra. But beneath all the media hysteria is an incredibly positive benefit no one has mentioned.

“Because of this one prescription drug, impotence now has become a household word. Men are actually admitting it and going to their doctors. And when they do so, doctors can screen them for other possible health problems, like diabetes and heart disease, which can unknowingly be the cause of erectile failure.

“Well, now a new report says many of these men are turning up with serious – and undetected – vascular problems. So Viagra may end up saving these men’s lives.

“Erectile failure can be a symptom of the narrowing of the blood vessels from heart disease. A cardiologist looked at 25 patients with physical impotence. Almost half had at least one risk factor for vascular disease, including having a first-degree relative with heart disease.

“One-third of the men had two risk factors for vascular disease. Sixteen percent had three, and 4 percent had four of them for major cardiac compromise. When they put them on a treadmill nearly 16 percent of them had serious abnormalities worth further investigation. This is why it’s important that men go to their doctors to get a complete work-up before getting the drug. It could save their lives.”

END NOTE
Experts admit all the hoopla over Viagra is also getting hundreds of thousands of men to seek help for sexual problems for the very first time. So all in all, maybe the hoopla has been worth it.
