Men with greater handgrip strength have a lower risk of erectile dysfunction (ED), new findings suggest. 

In a cross-sectional study of 1708 men, Ho Seok Chung, MD, and colleagues at Chonnam National University Medical School in Gwangju, Korea, found the odds of ED decreased by 18% for each 5 kg increase in hand grip strength, according an online report in Aging Male. In addition, a high level of moderate to vigorous physical activity was associated with 25% decreased odds of ED. 

Increasing age and HbA1c level were associated with an increasing risk of ED.
