Peyronie's Disease & High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure and diabetes are both associated with cardiovascular health and Peyronie's disease. Most people who suffer from high blood pressure (Hypertension) are aware that this increases their chances of heart attack, a stroke or kidney failure. But it can also be a contributory factor in the development of Peyronie's disease.

So is the use of certain medications, such as beta-blockers. This is thought to be because they can cause fibrotic tissue disorders in the penis leading to the formation of plaques and scars. Furthermore, there is also some evidence that oxidative stress plays a role in Peyronie's disease as well as heart disease.

 

 

 

 

Understanding the Impact of High Blood Pressure

Our bodies need blood pressure in order for the blood to circulate from our heart, through our arteries, blood vessels and veins. With high blood pressure our hearts have to work harder in order to pump the blood around our vascular system.

Our arteries are designed to stretch with our blood pressure going up and down and cope with the everyday events like eating, sleeping, exercise or stress. With high blood pressure the arteries start to stiffen, lose their flexibility and narrow. As they narrow, fatty material starts to attach to the sides, clogging up the flow of blood.

Exploring the Link Between Beta Blockers and Peyronie's Disease

Many patients are prescribed Beta blockers a medication to reduce blood pressure. They cause the heart to beat at a slower pace, with less force resulting in lower blood pressures. There is a recognised association between people who take Beta blockers and those that suffer Peyronie's disease.
