Why does diabetes cause erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to get or maintain an erection that is firm enough to have sex.  In recent studies it has shown that close to 60% of diabetic men are impotent. This has caused some of them to fall into depression or become reliant on drugs. It is amazing then that this area has been one of the most neglected complications associated with having diabetes.

The main issue with diabetes and erectile dysfunction stems from problems controlling ones blood sugar levels. This in turn impacts on vital organs through the damage it does to nerves and blood vessels. The smaller blood vessels in your penis are often unable to get healthy blood flow which is required to give you a strong healthy erection. This may mean weak, flaccid or no erections at all.

Diabetes can also impact your blood pressure as well which may also impact the strength of a man’s erection. All this can leave a man and his partner very frustrated, discouraged and even depressed.

    Wow, I learned a lot!

    What a great article about the downsides of diabetes for men.

    I love how easy this was to read and the free ebook that you have supplied!

    This is a wonderful blog and I’m sure this is educating many people on this subject.

    Thanks for sharing this information,

      Yes Mike it is a definite ‘downside’ to diabetes for men as you say. But the good news is that there is plenty of help starting with that eBook. To be honest ED it is one of the complications that does not get a lot of air time. I suppose the potential for heart attack and strokes is a little more important in real terms, but diabetes is one of the chronic diseases that seems to affect everything in a bad way. Thanks for tuning in.

    I think I know a lot about diabetes but this is a new one on me. I never heard of erectile dysfunction caused by diabetes but being a diabetic, I sure don’t want that problem. It appears that there are options if men have it but my choice is to get rid of diabetes and not ever experience this condition.

    1. Ben (Post author)

      That’s the best way forward for sure Rob. Yes diabetes affects many things that you would not generally think of. Hearing loss is another symptom that not many people including diabetics are aware of. See my blog post about hearing issues here

      Good luck with everything Rob, awareness is a vital step in the overall process.
