Is erectile dysfunction and low testosterone related? Yes: If you have low testosterone levels (often called "Low-T") or hypogonadism, it could be causing decreased libido (sex drive), decreased energy, stress, depression and in rare cases erectile dysfunction. Hormone replacement therapy may provide you with the needed solution to get and sustain an erection. Your doctor may decide to administer testosterone supplements if you are experiencing erectile dysfunction and low testosterone levels, although the benefits are often only moderate for the direct treatment of ED.
DHEA and erectile dysfunction are linked, but it's a little bit of a path to get there:
Erectile dysfunction (ED) has many causes with low testosterone being one of them. Testosterone is produced in large quantities in the testes and small amount are also produced in the adrenal gland. It is common to have a drop in testosterone as men get older but a drastic drop can result in erectile dysfunction. Decrease in testosterone results in decreased libido and can cause impotence. This can cause a significant strain on a couple’s relationship.
