Erectile dysfunction (ED) can negatively impact the quality of life among men, and increasingly affects all age strata. This has led to an explosion of health information on ED both for patients and doctors, which may cause potentially harmful effects when misused or abused. Therefore, the necessity of developing a standardized, appropriate guideline for the diagnosis and management of ED is increasing. In this review, the author describes risk factors, diagnosis and treatment guidelines for ED, which can be usefully applied in clinical practice.
