ERECTION & SLEEPING DISORDERS
Sleeping disorders, like sleep apnea and insomnia, affect oxygen levels. However, sleeping disorders can lower your testosterone levels. The roles of oxygen and testosterone in erectile health are closely related, so sleeping disorders can lead to erectile dysfunction(ED). In addition, sleep apnea and insomnia, in particular, have a positive effect on ED symptoms. If you have sleep apnea or insomnia, talk to your doctor about treatment, as it may also reduce ED.
WHY DO SLEEPING DISORDERS LEAD TO ERECTION DYSFUNCTION?
Insomniac men are more likely to suffer from hypogonadism, a condition in which the testes don’t produce enough sex hormones. However, sleep apnea is linked to low libido and low testosterone reproduction. If you think you have sleep apnea or insomnia, see your healthcare provider. Moreover, men with sleeping disorders are linked to a higher rate of erectile dysfunction (ED). Treatment can ease your symptoms and might help prevent heart problems and ED.
