Diabetes & Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition in which the body does not properly process food to use for energy. A large portion of the food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar. The pancreas, an organ that lies near the stomach, makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells in our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes sugars to build up in your blood leading to serious health complications.
What causes erectile dysfunction in men with diabetes?
Your penis needs an ample and constant flow of blood to create and maintain a solid erection for sexual intercourse. However, if your blood sugar is unstable, it can hinder the blood vessels and nerves responsible for getting and maintaining an erection.
Also, the medications for diabetes commonly aggravate sexual disorders like erectile dysfunction which can lead to low libido. Diabetes is also linked to low testosterone, which is an important factor for healthy penile function.
How common is impotence among men with diabetes?
In the 10 years following the diagnosis of diabetes, 50% of those men will develop incompetence due to erectile dysfunction.
Diabetes is the primary reason for retrograde ejaculation, an irregularity during climax that sends semen into your bladder instead of your penis. Retrograde ejaculations aren’t painful or cause harm to the body, but they do cause infertility.
