Erectile Dysfunction and Diabetes: What You Should Know

Men who suffer from diabetes also have erectile dysfunction in 35% to 75% of cases. If you have diabetes and are concerned about erectile dysfunction (ED) there are several options available for you to discuss with your doctor. If you have diabetes you can expect to develop ED anywhere from 10 to 15 years sooner than if you did not suffer from that condition. The situation becomes more complicated if you also suffer from heart disease, as this may make you ineligible for a number of treatment options. 

What You Should Know

First and foremost, if you are a diabetes patient and are concerned about ED the first step is to ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a urologist. Together, your treatment team can determine the best treatment that takes your medical conditions into account. 

  • Oral medications such as Cialis and Viagra are the most commonly utilized methods for ED treatment. As mentioned above, this is not a suitable option for anyone who also has heart disease or other cardiac abnormalities. If you are unsure about these medications, and if they are safe for you, you will need to discuss the matter with our physicians at Preferred Men's Medical Center.
  • In addition to medication, there are other treatment options that may be appropriate for you, especially if you have heart disease. ED sufferers with both diabetes and heart issues can ask their doctor about penile prosthesis, a vacuum erection, intraurethral therapy, and intracavernous injection therapy. 
  • A non-medical treatment option that is effective for many people is sex therapy. This can help you to understand the causes of your ED and how it is affecting your partner. Many men find that it is helpful to attend sex therapy sessions with their partner.

ED is a treatable condition that does not need to mean the end of your sex life. Contact the experienced team at Preferred Men's Medical Center to schedule an appointment today.
