Diabetes & Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a serious health condition that happens when your body is unable to manage your blood sugar levels. Your pancreas creates insulin to transport sugar out of your bloodstream and into your cells where it converts into energy. Without the right amount of insulin, your body struggles to deal with the excess sugar and can become very sick.
What causes erectile dysfunction in men with diabetes?
For sexual intercourse, your penis needs a good amount and steady flow of blood to create and maintain a firm erection. When your blood sugar is not regulated and unmanageable, it can damage the blood vessels and nerves responsible for getting and maintaining an erection.
The medications for diabetes usually increase the symptoms related to sexual disorders like erectile dysfunction and cause low libido. Diabetes is also linked to low testosterone, which is a critical component of healthy penile function.
How common is impotence among men with diabetes?
50% of all men who suffer from diabetes develop erectile dysfunction 10 years following the diagnosis.
Diabetes also causes retrograde ejaculation, an abnormality during climax that directs your semen into your bladder instead of your penis. Retrograde ejaculations do not cause any physical harm, but they do cause infertility.
What treatments are available for impotent men with diabetes?
Trident Health Group encourages men to minimize the effects of diabetes by taking necessary precautions, such as:
- Maintain healthy glycemic control
- Quit smoking
- Stay active and exercise regularly
Trident Health Group has had remarkable success treating men who have diabetes and erectile dysfunction with our Acoustic Wave Therapy Protocol. The innovative therapy uses acoustic waves to stimulate the production of new blood vessels in your penis. With new, fully functioning blood vessels patients are able to get and maintain a firm erection for the entire duration of sexual intercourse.
