Can Asthma Impact Male Organ Health?
Asthma is one of the more common ailments, affecting some 25 million
men, women and children in the United States alone. It’s clearly a concern
for many people, affecting their respiratory health to varying degrees. But
what about male organ health? Is there any reason to think that asthma might
have some impact in this area? The answer is, to a degree, yes.
About asthma
Asthma is a condition in which the pathways that carry air get narrower and
wider, rather than remaining a fairly consistent size. When this happens, it’s
more difficult to breathe, and a person may experience side effects like
coughing or wheezing. Asthma can be very mild and cause almost no
complications for a person, or it can be more severe, in some cases creating
significant health concerns. About 1,700,000 U.S. hospitals visits every year
are due to asthma, and about 3,500 people in the U.S. pass away annually
from asthma or asthma-related issues.
When a person has a severe case of asthma, it may impede their ability to
play sports, walk long distances, climb stairs or engage in other physical
activities. Asthma reactions may be triggered by an allergic reaction, by
exercise or by exposure to chemicals or dust. Many people treat asthma
through the use of an inhaler, which sends chemicals into the body to help
return air pathways to normal.
The male organ health connection
So if asthma affects the lungs and air pathways, why in the world should
they have any impact on a man’s male organ health?
One reason is because there is a clear (though poorly understood) link
between asthma and heart disease. According to one study, a person with
active asthma is more than twice as likely to develop heart disease than a
person without asthma. And heart disease has a clear effect on male organ
health. When the heart does not function at its proper level, blood does not
flow as it should, which can have an effect on the member’s ability to
become tumescent. In addition, some doctors believe that medications used
to treat asthma may have a link with increasing the likelihood of cardiac
In addition, some of the chemical inhalants which contribute to asthma are
thought to raise bad cholesterol levels, which can also impact heart health.
What about beyond heart health, however? Is there another asthma
connection to male organ health?
According to some scientists, there is. There appears to be evidence that
male hormone levels might be lower in men with asthma. This, however,
appears to be not so much a result of the asthma itself as it is of treatment for
the disease. Corticosteroids are often used to help treat asthma, and
corticosteroids work by raising levels of cortisol in the body. When cortisol
goes up, male hormone tends to go down. In turn, lower levels of male
hormone are associated with a decreased sensual drive and with some
potential tumescence issues.
One other area of impact: asthma simply drains one’s physical stamina. This
may make it more difficult to sustain tumescence; even if the tumescence is
maintained, it may be more difficult to go through the physical rigors
involved in sensual engagement.
Men who feel that asthma or its treatment may be affecting their male organ
health should discuss this with their doctor to develop strategies to address
Asthma is not the only deterrent to male organ health, of course, so men
need to take steps to maintain appropriate care. One easy way is to regularly
use a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend
Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin.) The
best crème will include l-arginine, an amino acid which helps increase nitric
oxide; this in turn helps keep manhood blood vessels open and receptive to
increased blood flow. Try to find a crème that also includes vitamin B5.
Also known as pantothenic acid, vitamin B5 is a vital nutrient that is
required for cell metabolism and maintaining healthy tissue.
