    Understanding Erectile Dysfunction: Causes and Implications

    Understanding Erectile Dysfunction: Causes and Implications

    My Clinic: https://www.clearhealthmedical.com
    Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that affects around 12 million men in the US, with the risk increasing with age. Male sexual function requires the interaction of vascular, neurologic, hormonal, and psychological systems. ED can be caused by problems in any of these areas. It is important for healthcare providers to approach ED without judgment and to focus on coaching and understanding the patient's needs. ED is linked to multiple other diseases, especially cardiovascular ones, that should be asked about during the visit.

    Vitamins that Protect Against Hearing Loss

    Vitamins that Protect Against Hearing Loss

    My Clinic: https://www.clearhealthmedical.com
    Summary
    A recent study in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine explored the protective effect of certain vitamins on hearing loss. The study conducted a meta-analysis of dietary consumption studies to determine the association between vitamin intake and hearing loss. The study found that a higher intake of antioxidants and vitamins, such as beta-carotene, retinol, and riboflavin, was inversely associated with the risk of developing hearing loss. However, the study had limitations, including the accuracy of diet recall and the variability in hearing tests. Overall, consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables can help protect against hearing loss.
