Improvement in erectile function following weight loss in obese men: The SHED-IT randomized controlled trial
Obesity Research & Clinical Practice, 11/14/2013Collins CE, et al.
In a randomized controlled trial 145 sexually active overweight/obese men received either a male only SHED–IT (Self Help Exercise and Diet Using IT) weight loss program or a wait–list control. Erectile function (IIEF–5) was compared between men in the active intervention versus controls. A minimal contact, gender–tailored weight loss program significantly improved men's erectile function. Further studies evaluating change in erectile function with weight loss are warranted.
