This tiny, butterfly-shaped gland is actually responsible for controlling men’s libido and sexual function… Here’s how to keep it healthy for bigger, better erections…
Get Great Erections, Even if You’ve Been Struggling for Years
Sometimes extra testosterone doesn’t fix erection problems…
Doctors put men on gels, injections, or patches… And still, they struggle with getting hard…
That’s because most doctors don’t know much about penile fibrosis… That’s a condition that affects men’s penile chambers…
But penile fibrosis is reversible, and you can easily clear out the penile chambers and have great erections and great sex again.
Keep This Gland Healthy for Bigger, Better Erections
The thyroid is a little that gland sits at the base of the throat.
And the job of the thyroid gland is to produce thyroid hormones.
These hormones circulate and control the metabolic rate of cells.
Thyroid problems can affect every part of the body because thyroid hormones affect every cell.
Researchers recently conducted a review of the best studies looking at thyroid function in relation to sexual dysfunction.
They found a clear relationship between thyroid problems and sexual dysfunction – including ED and premature ejaculation.
These researchers carried out the study at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and published their results in Sexual Medicine Review.
Sexual dysfunction is a widespread problem.
According to some research, it may affect up to 60% of the population.
“33‒60% of women report sexual dysfunction and 8‒52% of men [suffer from] erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation.”
A number of studies have looked into the effect of thyroid hormones on sexual function.
“The effect of thyroid hormone derangement has been of recent interest.”
This study looked at the relationship between thyroid hormones and sexual dysfunction in both men and women.
The researchers collected information from some of the best studies on the subject.
They gathered information on both low thyroid (hypothyroidism) and high thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
“Literature was reviewed to examine the effects of hypo- and hyperthyroidism on sexual function.”
The result showed that men with either abnormally high or low levels of thyroid hormones suffered more sexual dysfunction.
“Men with hypo- and hyperthyroidism have increased rates of sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction in men with hypothyroidism.”
Hypothyroidism, low thyroid, seemed particularly closely tied to erectile dysfunction.
Abnormally high levels of thyroid hormones can be treated with thyroid-blocking medications.
Abnormally low levels of thyroid hormone are treated with supplementary thyroid hormones.
Men receiving proper medication for thyroid dysfunction have improved sexual function.
“In both men with hyper- and hypothyroidism, treating the thyroid disorder at least partially reverses sexual dysfunction.”
The balance of evidence shows that thyroid problems can cause sexual problems for men.
The relationship between thyroid and sexual function in women was not so clear.
“Thyroid dysfunction is an important factor in the pathogenesis of sexual dysfunction in men and possibly women.”
Improving thyroid function can reverse sexual dysfunction such as premature ejaculation or ED.
“Evidence suggests a reversibility of sexual dysfunction with correction of thyroid dysfunction.”
The researchers are not exactly sure how or why this happens.
“The exact pathophysiology of thyroid mediated sexual dysfunction remains unknown.”
Well, thyroid hormones affect every cell – so thyroid dysfunction can affect every part of the body.
Thyroid dysfunction can include changes to the thyroid hormone levels.
Thyroid dysfunction can also lead to increased antibodies to the thyroid gland.
The link between thyroid dysfunction and sexual function in men is related to the thyroid hormones only.
This means it is a much simpler problem to fix than if it were related to the antibodies.
“Current evidence supports thyroid derangements rather than autoantibodies as the causative factor in men.”
Thyroid dysfunction is also associated with:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
Doctors often only do a rudimentary examination that looks at the TSH levels.
It is important that the thyroid hormone levels are properly tested too because just doing the TSH levels sometimes does not give accurate results.
A full thyroid hormone panel should also include T3, T4, and reverse T3.
For some people, diet and lifestyle changes can improve thyroid function.
Other people need medication.
Everyone should consult a doctor who is well trained in diagnosing and treating thyroid problems.
The Little Discovery That Lets Men Last 30 Minutes or More
Just outside the Sacred Valley in Peru, I made this little discovery that gives men outstanding erections for 30 minutes or more…
Not only does this little discovery give you long-lasting erections, but it also allows you to feel more pleasure… possibly more than you ever have before…
So I immediately start sharing this little discovery with other men. First, I shared it with my affiliate, Vic.
And when he uses this little discovery with his ex-girlfriend, he gets the most amazing, satisfying results…
