All men with gout should be routinely screened for erectile dysfunction
Date:6/12/2014

A new study presented today at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014) showed that erectile dysfunction (ED) is present in most men with gout and is frequently severe.1

In a survey of 201 men, 83 had gout, of whom a significantly greater proportion had ED (76%) compared with those patients without gout (52%) (p= 0.0007). Also, a significantly greater proportion of gout patients (43%) had severe ED compared with patients without gout (30%) (p=0.007).1

Around 1 4% of the Western population will develop gout at some point in their lifetime.2 The arthritis is caused by deposits of needle-like monosodium urate crystals in the joints and is associated with an abnormally high level of urate in the bloodstream. The crystals cause inflammation, swelling, and pain in the affected joint.2

"Because gout is commonly associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and coronary artery disease (CAD) and patients who present with ED also have an increased rate of CVD risk factors and concomitant silent CAD, all these patients should also be evaluated for possible silent CAD," Dr. Schlesinger concluded.

ED is a common problem in the general population, with the prevalence of moderate to severe ED estimated to between 5 20%.2 The likelihood of ED increases progressively with age; however, it is not an inevitable consequence of aging.3 The importance of vascular disease as an underlying ca
