Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
With Erectile Dysfunction (ED), a man can’t get or keep an erection firm enough for sex. Men with diabetes are three times more likely to have ED. Getting older doesn’t cause ED, but it does increase your chance of getting it.
Men who have diabetes are more likely to have heart disease, and ED can be a warning sign of blood vessel problems. If you have both, The Diabetes Centre provides you a platform to talk to our experts about treatment and medicines.
Some facts here’s what ED isn’t:
- Occasional trouble having an erection. That really does happen to everyone.
- Less interest in sex with partner. ED happens when a man wants to have sex but can’t have or keep an erection.
- Problems with ejaculation mean a structural problem with the penis.
- It’s not uncommon to have trouble getting an erection sometimes, but if it gets worse, happens often, or prevents you from living the life you want, it’s time to get it checked out.
In addition to ED, nerve damage from diabetes can cause other problems for men, including:
- Overactive bladder (needing to urinate often, urinating often at night, leaking urine)
- Male incontinence (leaking urine)
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Retrograde ejaculation (semen is released into the bladder)
These problems could mean, you need to change how you’re managing your diabetes.
