Diabetes Mellitus Causes Impotence


When someone is being decided to have diabetes mellitus, usually he will also have impotence or erectile dysfunction problem. How serious the impotence is depend on his blood sugar level. Some doctors make conclusion that diabetes mellitus is one of diseases that causes impotence.

Diabetes men have higher chance, which is around 2,6 up to 4 times, to get impotence rather than healthy man. And 1,6 times to get dyslipidemia, 1,8 up to 2,4 times to get heart disease and 1,6 up to 1,7 to get hypertension.

The main cause of diabetes patient impotence is neuropathic. Neuropathic is damage in penis parasympathetic nerve that makes helicina artery relaxation in corpus cavernous not occur.

As the result, blood circulation volume remains still and penis not become bigger. Normally, neuropathic process runs slowly then along with the time, neuropathic occur in all nerves and finally total damage will occur.

Impotence problem is in line with neuropathic process. At first, perfect erection still occur. But the longer someone become diabetes mellitus patient, the less erection quality and ability he will have.

Sometimes erection is still normal during intimacy or when penis got seductive. But then after penetration, it suddenly becomes soft inside the vagina. This might happen because he has unfit physical condition. But it has also another cause that is psychological factor such as worry that lead him into having weak erection.

Neuropathic process is different for each individual. There are some people who are very sensitive to neuropathic while some are strong for having their blood sugar level increase.

Based on the research, penis nerves still tolerate half of diabetes mellitus patients with blood sugar level less than 200mg/ml. That is why neuropathic didn’t occur and they still can have normal penis erection.

Almost all patients who have blood sugar level up to 400mg/ml are having erectile dysfunction or impotence temporarily. However, when they are not controlling their blood sugar to reach below 200mg/mil, neuropathic will develop and cause serious impotence.

Sudden impotence of having blood sugar up to 400mg/ml is not cause by neuropathic but by broken endotel from sinusoid. Broken endotel sinusoid can not send nitrogen oxide to activated cGMP. So diabetes mellitus can cause erectile dysfunction or impotence in a slow way by neuropathic or in a sudden way by the broken endotel sinusoid.

Neuropathic process is a slow process, so impotence that occurs will be in a slow way too. Neuropathic has a persistent character, so when a patient has erectile dysfunction or impotence by this cause, it will hard for them to heal it.

But it is different when erection failure happens because of endotel problem. It has a temporary character by a sudden increase of blood sugar level. The condition will back to normal again in a short period of time.

However, when the blood sugar level remain high, neuropathic will occur and endotel will have a total damage. That condition will make impotence / erectile dysfunction really hard to be healed. Even if erection can back to normal with some treatment techniques like erectogenic or intra cavernous injection, patients will then depend on medicine for the rest of their life.

Impotence and Diabetes Mellitus Prevalence

Many researches had shown that erectile dysfunction or impotence for diabetes mellitus patients has higher prevalence compare to non-diabetes patients. Sand M had done the research with 1.637 respondents and got the result that for diabetes patients, 39% of them had impotence, while for non-diabetes patients only 14% of them.

So as the conclusion, more diabetes patients will get impotence. Diabetes patients that we are discussing here are those who are in a light stage of illness until the serious one. Follow this link how to prevent impotence for diabetes mellitus patients.
For all serious diabetes patients, for sure they will get impotence. Another research by Braun M had shown a different tendency between young men with old men. At the younger age, impotence for diabetes patients is higher than non-diabetes patients.

And for the elder, the tendency to have impotence for diabetes and non diabetes patients are almost the same.
The reason is that for elder people (60-80 year old) another disease arises such as hypertension, kidney failure and many more. And those other diseases are causing impotence.

His research had shown that more than 50% of non diabetes patients at the age above 70 year-old have erectile dysfunction and only 60% of diabetes patients have it. So it doesn’t have a big difference not like men at younger age.

    Hello I appreciated your post. I think that it is necessary when talking about diabetes to at least bring up natural treatments that have been proven to be effective in managing high blood glucose. Several natural herbs can be including in a diabetics regimen that can help keep a healthy glucose level.
