The patient has listened carefully to the information but now has questions about what has caused the ED.

He asks you for more information about what could have caused the ED and whether he can take steps in his lifestyle to improve his condition. To find further information about the condition and treatment, you go to the ED treatment summary (7). This is found by going to the ‘treatment summaries’ section, choosing the genito-urinary system and then choosing ED (8). You can use the menu pane to select the different subsections and check the triggers of sexual dysfunction before discussing lifestyle changes that may help (e.g. regular exercise, weight loss, smoking cessation and reduced alcohol consumption).
