Sustain Hgb: To sustain your hemoglobin, eat a normal, balanced diet that contains enough iron and b12. Avoid toxic exposures. Don't drink alcohol excessively. Get enough rest. See your doctor if chronically ill, having abnormal stools, pale, abnormally tired, or short of breath when you shouldn't be. Good luck.

See your doctor: While ed is certainly more common in older men, several population-based studies have shown that a proportion of men as young as their 20s may suffer from ed. He should see his doctor to see if there is an identifiable cause. In most cases of ed in younger men, it is a transient condition that may resolve on its own after a while.
