Thank you for your question. How much have you researched cardiometabolic syndrome? I'm going to list some of the conditions that fall under the umbrella diagnosis that is cardiometabolic syndrome:
Cardiovacular disease, dyslipidaemia, hypertension, osteoperosis, PCOS, alzheimer's disease, renal disease, type 2 diabetes, thyroid abnormalities, sleep apnoea and erectile dysfunction.
Yes, erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the down stream effects of cardiometabolic syndrome rather than a result of it's management. Yes there are some medications that you are using that may have as a minor side effect an association with ED but I wouldn't say that the meds are the cause and leave it as that. Some GP's would even go as far as prescribng an erection enhancer such as viagra for you but it would be just another example of trying to manage the problem superficially but not at the root.
In my opinion the meds are helping you control the symptoms of cardiometabolic syndrome, and making life more comfortable, but they are not addressing the underlying causes contributing to the chronic inflammatory process driving the various disease profiles you have. My suggestion would be to look at focusing more attention to calming this level of inflammation down with appropriate plant botanicals, working through the lifestyle habits that gave rise to this syndrome in the first place and hopefully begin to eventually let go the the various pharmaceuticals that you ave been placed on.
