ED ; heart: Ed may be an indicator of blood flow/cardiac issues. Your doc and examine you and find out. In that case it may be the symptom rather than the cause. Very high cholesterol may indicate or be related to plaque in blood vessels and also related. There are natural approaches to lowering cholesterol. Ask doc. Peace and good health.
