ED can happen at any age. Proper diagnosis and the right treatment could improve your overall well-being. Sometimes ED can be an early warning sign of a more serious illness, such as heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes mellitus. If it is determined that erectile dysfunction is a problem, then a detailed sexual and medical history and physical examination should be done to evaluate the problem. ED is diagnosed by an Endocrinologist/ Sexologist or Andrologist through a brief history and physical examination.
