Erectile dysfunction (ED) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) may seem unrelated at first glance, but they share a common link through their association with endothelial dysfunction. Endothelial cells line the blood vessels, and when they are impaired, it can lead to reduced blood flow and vessel constriction. In both ED and PAH, there is an underlying problem with the endothelium, contributing to the conditions. Additionally, certain risk factors, such as obesity, smoking, and age, can exacerbate both ED and PAH. Understanding this connection highlights the importance of addressing endothelial health and adopting lifestyle changes to potentially mitigate the risk of developing these conditions.
