Treatment for impotency

My boyfriend has experienced impotency issues. He has been drinking 2-3 protein shakes a day I heard this can cause problems with achieving and maintaining erections. He is a healthy 35 yr old mail. He had his prostate checked and its fine. Any suggestions? Shouldn't h stop taking the protein altogether?

Hi,

The protein intake is not related to erectile dysfunction. I suggest you check his sugar level and measure blood pressure to exclude diabetes and hypertension. He need to loose weight if obese. Investigate with his testosterone and prolactin level as well. He can use Tadalafil for short duration. Advise him to practice more foreplay while doing sex.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
