Your doctor needs to help you restore appropriate levels. The cholesterol and especially LDL are future risks for cardiac disease, and possibly stroke. The vitamin D needs to be boosted to the 50-70 ng/ ml range, and there is a need to uncover whether blood loss is causing low iron. Get proactive and address all of this. ED can later be handled by a urologist.
