Impotence - Caused by Diabetes

Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diabetes. Left untreated, it can erode the quality of life for you and your sexual partner. Sexual problems can increase your level of stress, trigger depression and even make you less likely to manage your diabetes effectively.

Impotence is the regular inability to achieve or sustain an erection of sufficient rigidity for sexual intercourse. Any man can develop erectile dysfunction. Yet erectile dysfunction inflicts as many as 80 percent of men with diabetes, compared to about 22 to 25 percent of men without diabetes. Erectile dysfunction most frequently develops after age 65. In men with diabetes, however, it tends to occur 10 or 15 years earlier, on average.  The longer you've had diabetes and the more severe E.D. is likely to become.

When you have diabetes, three main risk factors can develop erectile dysfunction: nerve damage throughout your body; blood vessel deterioration that interfers with the production of EPCs; and lack of endothelial cells producing nitric oxide, which serves as a signaling molecule used in pathological and physiological process. [1]

So even though you might be emotionally stimulated to have intercourse, nerve damage prevents that information from being relayed to the penis. Blood vessels can also become narrowed or hardened by conditions that often accompany diabetes, such as cardiovascular disease, while lower nitric oxide levels make it even harder to achieve an erection due to the lack of communication between the brain and penis. People with Type II diabetes often have a damaged endothelial layer in the penis blood vessel that also fails to produce enough nitric oxide for a hard erection.

Lack of nitric oxide can also prevent the pressure of blood in the corpora cavernosa from rising enough to close off penile veins, allowing the blood to flow out of the penis instead of remaining trapped for an erection.

Natural Approachs and Life Style Changes

To combat diabetes and impotence, you need to first control your blood sugar through proper dieting.  Avoid tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption, as these conditions can cause other forms of impotence. In addition, supplement your diet with herbs that treat the underlying condition. Taking natural formulas with these herbs to boost up testosterone can be of tremendous benefit for men with type II diabetes. Not only can testosterone help enhance erection, but also sensitize a man’s cells to admit glucose more readily. According to Dr. Dheeraj Kappor’s published research, 20 diabetic men reported improvements in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), waist circumference, fasting blood glucose, insulin sensitivity and blood lipid levels after using testosterone replacement therapy. [2] [3] [4]
