Boston Medical Group, as many people know, is the leading organization in terms of treating the disorder of erectile dysfunction, which is otherwise known as ED.
And certainly when physicians are the recognized experts, they are always on top of the latest studies and discoveries in the field.
One of those that have been unearthed recently draws a connection between rheumatoid arthritis and erectile dysfunction.
The study was conducted by researchers from the Taipei (Taiwan) Medical University.
There were 6310 patients in the study, of differing ages, and it included only erectile dysfunction patients who had been diagnosed with the disorder twice or more between 2001 and 2009.
The study concluded that men who had rheumatoid arthritis were at two-thirds greater risk of developing ED than men who did not have it. These results were published in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
Since chronic inflammation is associated with RA, it is perhaps not a big surprise that ED may be a condition that appeared as a result of it. Never before had a link been made between rheumatoid arthritis and erectile dysfunction.
Boston Medical Group believes it is important to understand that erectile dysfunction can often develop as a result of some other ailment, no matter what it is. That is why men have to be careful.
