Erectile dysfunction is common,so it behooves primary care providers to be comfortable engaging our patients in conversation about the condition. Many factors can cause erectile dysfunction, including medications, DM, and OSA. It’s important to remember that if blood flow to the penis is compromised, blood flow in other organs - such as the heart - may be lacklustre. Be sure to address cardiovascular disease risk in patients with ED. Mainstay of treatment at the primary care level is phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors.
