Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction Questions and Answers

Is impotence common in men with diabetes?

After a diagnosis of diabetes, about 50% of men will develop some form of ED within ten years.

Diabetes can also cause retrograde ejaculation. This condition causes semen to be pushed into the bladder instead of the penis. While not painful or harmful to the body, retrograde ejaculations can cause infertility.

What type of treatments are there for men with diabetes who are impotent?

We urge all of our patients with diabetes to take precautions, such as:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Stop smoking
  • Keep up healthy glycemic control

We have made major advances at Swain Health Group when it comes to ED and diabetes. Our Acoustic Wave Therapy Protocol is a state-of-the-art treatment that will use acoustic waves to cause new blood vessels to form in your penis. When you have brand new blood vessels that work, you’ll be able to get and keep a solid erection that will last you through intercourse.

You may have to treat diabetes for the rest of your life. However, we can help cure your ED once and for all. You can depend on the medical staff at Swain Health Group for the help you need today. Call our office or jump online to book your next appointment.

How does erectile dysfunction occur in men who have diabetes?

In order to get and maintain a solid erection, your penis needs to receive a constant and ample flow of blood. If you are dealing with unstable blood sugar, this can cause your nerves and blood vessels to lack the blood they need to get and keep an erection.

Medication for diabetes can also aggravate ED. Some can cause a person to have a low sex drive. Low testosterone is also a side effect of diabetes.

What is diabetes?

When we eat, a large portion of our meals turns into sugar, or glucose. When the body is not able to properly process that food to use for energy, diabetes can develop. The pancreas makes insulin that helps the glucose get into your cells. If you have diabetes, you won’t use the insulin your body makes as well as you should, or your body will simply not make enough insulin. Because of this, sugar begins to build up in your blood. This then leads to severe health issues.
