Say Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction with Tadalafil

Erectile dysfunction, abbreviated ED, and otherwise known as impotence in men, is the failure of a man to obtain and maintain an erection which is direly needed for engaging in sexual intercourse.

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that is very common in much older men.  It has been estimated that about half of all men who are within the bracket age of 40 to 70 may have ED at a certain degree.  Depending on the circumstances and on the individual himself, erectile dysfunction can also affect those who are younger, even if they are just around the age of 25 or more.

Why does ED Occur in some Men?  Erectile dysfunction causes actually vary, and they can be physically related or psychologically related.  Physical causes of ED may include hormonal issues, surgery or injury, tightening of the blood vessels that lead towards the penis which is usually linked to high cholesterol, hypertension, or diabetes.  Psychological (mental) causes of ED may include depression, anxiety or problems with relationships.

Monday morning reading in Saskatoon

SASKATOON -- Hello from the CMA annual meeting, Canadian Medicine readers. We'll have plenty more coverage coming up later today, but in the meantime you can read what some other reporters are writing.


The CMA's new president, Anne Doig, is featured in a profile by André Picard. "I see my patients not getting as good of care as they could and should and I don't find that acceptable," she told him. "But I can't just sit in my office and grouse so I decided to act." [The Globe and Mail]

The Canadian Press's Jennifer Graham takes a look at Dr Doig's call for health-system overhaul. "We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize," Dr Doig said. [Canadian Press] Ms Graham also discussed the anticipated second wave of the pandemic H1N1 flu with Dr Doig. [Canadian Press]

Local reporter Jason Warick previewed federal health minister Leona Aglukkaq's speech to the CMA General Council, scheduled for this morning. She plans to discuss the radioisotope-shortage crisis and the H1N1 flu. [Saskatoon StarPhoenix]

The Toronto Star praises Dr Doig for what the paper's editorial board considers to be her break with the activist pattern established by Brian Day and Robert Ouellet over the last two years. "With new leadership, the CMA has an opportunity to put its considerable resources toward seeking improvements within the public system." [Toronto Star]

Konrad Yakabuski cautions Canadian politicians that healthcare reform here could be as difficult to accomplish as it's proven to be in the United States over recent years, and suggests that alternative models of physician compensation should be on the table. [The Globe and Mail]

And don't forget to read Canadian Medicine's Q&As with outgoing president Robert Ouellet and new boss Anne Doig, published today.

    Hohum.......

    Denoument (tying up the loose ends)........ does not have to be "anticlimactic".

    ( tell that to the drama queens...... guys).

    PLUS

    .....that rigid tube " bypassing all obstructions" and ?normal processes...... is for "gavage" feeding....

    The key questions is:

    Who is holding the syringe?

    A=$

    Seriously........ why ride ..... when you could drive?

    The destination may be established........ but the route could still benefit from creative construction.
