Thanks for the information.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) that results from a complex process; there are many contributing factors which could be physical, psychological, or drug induced.Thus, the cause of the problem has to be identified to get rid of this problem. Some of the known risk factors are: Medical conditions, particularly diabetes or heart conditions; Tobacco use, Being overweight, especially if you're obese; Certain medical treatments, such as prostate surgery; Injuries, particularly if they damage the nerves or arteries that control erections; Medications, including antidepressants, antihistamines and medications to treat high blood pressure, pain or prostate conditions;Psychological conditions, such as stress, anxiety or depression;Drug and alcohol use, especially if you're a long-term drug user or heavy drinker.

There are many treatment options available now a days. All these treatment options are not suitable for everyone so you need to try different options to find the suitable one. It is always better to see your doctor so that they can assess your health condition and suggest you the best suitable option for your problem. Sometimes combination or a new treatment options are used to get better outcome. Often, meds like cialis is very effective for this problem.

In your case, I would think about obesity as a major contributor for this problem, but you can get another blood test for testosterone.
