Diabetes and Sexual Wellness in Men
Men with diabetes often face sexual wellness issues such as Erectile Dysfunction or ED.
Diabetes is not a single condition. It is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by increased levels of glucose, or “sugar” in the blood.
In the past decade alone, according to the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI), Americans living with diabetes jumped more than 40 percent – to almost 26 million. Internationally, the numbers are just as chilling.
DRI estimates there are 382 million people worldwide living with diabetes, and the World Health Organization believes that number may more than double by 2030.
To understand diabetes you must understand insulin, and its role in metabolizing, or processing the food that you eat. We refer to diabetes as a “metabolic condition” not a disease, because it effects how you “metabolize”, or draw energy, from the foods you eat.
When you have diabetes, either your body does not produce enough insulin to “knock loud” enough on the “doors” of the cells to open, or there is something wrong with the “doorbell.”
Either way, sugar does not get into the cells where it belongs, and builds up in the blood, leading to the symptoms of diabetes. The typical symptoms include, fatigue, increased urination, excessive thirst, and increased hunger.
Because of the nature of diabetes, among its other detrimental effects, it can have a profound impact on sexual wellness in men and can often lead to erectile dysfunction.
Diabetes and Sexual Wellness Issues
Because diabetes effects blood circulation and nerve sensitivity, it can have a negative impact on erectile function. This is unfortunate, not only because of the obvious impact on your love life, but many scientific studies have shown that a healthy and active sex life, contributes to overall vitality, and well-being.
This can be particularly important in helping someone with diabetes, better deal with the condition.
ED is often a complication of diabetes, not only because of the long term damaging effects on blood vessels and nerves that diabetes can cause. Additionally, ED is often caused by other conditions common in men with diabetes, such as high blood pressure and coronary artery disease.
While there are some well-known oral medications available to treat ED, many of these cannot be taken by men with diabetes.
