Iron Overload Can Impact Penis Function

November 17, 2018

When penis health is good, penis function is more likely to be good as well. But sometimes there are conditions which indirectly affect penis function. One such example may occur when a man suffers from iron overload, that is, an excess amount of iron in his system.

Iron is basically good

Now, as any boy who is told to eat his spinach or take his vitamins knows, the body needs iron. In most cases, iron is a good thing. This mineral is an essential component of hemoglobin, which takes iron out of the lungs and transports it around the body to the tissues which need it to thrive and work properly. It also plays a role in growth and development, as well as in cellular function.

Sometimes a person has too little iron and can develop anemia, a situation in which not enough oxygen is transported around the body. This leaves a person feeling tired and fatigued and can have long term health consequences.

But in some cases, a person may actually get too much iron. When this happens, there is more iron than the body can properly process. If it is not removed it will travel around the body until it comes to rest in various tissues and organs, such as the heart, brain, liver, pancreas, pituitary gland, etc. This can have a negative effect on the organ; if the iron overload is too severe, it can impair the proper functioning of the organ and in some cases can destroy it.

Penis function

And how does iron overload affect penis function? The main problems are when the heart and/or pituitary gland gets iron overloaded.

Clearly, anything that affects the heart is bad news and cardiac issues can impact a man’s total health. In terms of penis health, impaired cardiac function can affect a man’s stamina so that he may have a more difficult time “keeping going” while having sex. It can also affect the heart’s ability to pump blood at an appropriate level to build and then maintain an erection, leading to erectile dysfunction. Finally, a slower blood rate also means a decrease in oxygen being delivered, which weakens penile tissue.

The pituitary gland is important in penis health because it produces a wide variety of hormones – many of which affect the penis. If the pituitary is impaired, a man’s libido may suffer, his ability to achieve erections may diminish, and in some cases, he may experience shrinkage of the testes.

Causes

Iron overload can sometimes be caused by simply having too much iron in the diet; however, usually there is an outside factor at work. These include hereditary conditions such as hereditary hemochromatosis or thalassemia. Diseases requiring frequent blood transfusions, such as leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, lymphoma, or sickle cell disease, and again including thalassemia, also can result in iron overload.

Typically, iron overload is treated either by phlebotomy or chelation. With phlebotomy, a unit of blood is removed from the body, with the process repeated every few weeks as necessary until iron levels are normal. Chelation involves administering a drug on a daily basis over an extended period of time; the drug will “bind” with the iron and remove it gradually.

Penis function impacted by iron overload will more easily recover if penis health is not otherwise affected, so guys should regularly apply a superior penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Take trouble to select a crème that contains a wide range of necessary vitamins, especially vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. In addition, a penis should be rewarded with a crème containing L-arginine. This ingredient helps to boost the body’s production of nitric oxide; this in turn helps penile blood vessels to expand more readily when there is increased blood flow.
