Efficient lipid metabolism is very important to get hard erections and sustain the erections. Erectile dysfunction can be one of the earliest symptoms seen in cholesterol disorder. Hence when you notice erectile dysfunction it is advisable to approach your family physician and check the blood cholesterol level. This may help to reveal underlying heart disease too.
