Man with Thick NeckErectile dysfunction (ED), the most common of all male sexual disorders, is believed to affect approximately 40% of all men at some point in their lives. While ED can be attributed to several different causes, a new study suggests that a possible relationship may exist between the disorder and the circumference of a man's neck. Does this mean that having a fat neck will increase the likelihood of men experiencing erectile dysfunction?

To test the hypothesis that neck circumference is directly related to ED, researchers conducted a study using a sample of 92 men. Of this group, 47 men had a prior history of erectile dysfunction while the remaining 45 were healthy and undiagnosed with the disorder.

The results of the study showed that neck circumference (NC) was in fact greater in the group with ED than it was in the healthy sample. Men with a neck girth of 34.75cm (13.68 inches) or larger appear to be at an increased risk for experiencing ED.

Study Conclusion:

"In the light of these findings, NC may be a new component of MtS in ED patients. Additionally, NC may be a novel indicator of central obesity and ED. We suggest that NC values of 35 cm and over may predict ED in patients with MtS."

Before proclaiming neck measurement the newest precursor for erectile dysfunction, it should be noted that obesity in general has long been understood as one common factor in ED.

Men who are overweight have a much higher chance for experiencing erectile dysfunction than men who are not. It stands to reason that in many cases overweight men are likely to have larger necks due to having a greater amount of body fat.

While obesity itself may correlate with a larger neck circumference, it is not a foregone conclusion that all men with large necks are obese. American football players for instance can have enormous necks but still be extremely healthy with low body fat levels. Does this put them at greater risk for erectile dysfunction simply because they have thicker than average necks?

The results of this study introduces an interesting new parameter to be explored in the continuing research for erectile dysfunction diagnosis and treatment.
