Larger Waistline = Less Sex for Men

August 20, 2013

A recent study examined if a larger waist circumference (WC) is predictive of a greater severity of lower urinary tract symptoms. The study looked at men over 40 years old who had waistlines less than 35”, 35”-40” and over 40”.

The results of the study were that:

  • “WC was significantly and positively associated with prostate volume, serum prostate-specific antigen and International Prostate Symptom Score.
  • “Higher WCs were also significantly associated with a greater prevalence of hypertension, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity as well as the presence of erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory dysfunction.”

Just another reason to keep yourself fit, especially as you get older.
