“What is the relationship between sex and diabetes? Is there any reason for a diabetic man to reduce his level of sexual activity?” Larry Stephens of Advanced Male Medical Center said. “There is no reason for a man with diabetes to reduce his level of sexual activity. However, there are complications of diabetes that may hinder a man’s ability to have and sustain an erection.”

If a man has damage to the small blood vessels or the nerves involved in achieving an erection, the flow of blood into the penis may be impaired, preventing him from achieving or sustaining an erection.

Advanced Male Medical Center recommends the following: 1) Diabetics who are experiencing any sexual dysfunction should discuss it with their doctor, who can evaluate testosterone levels, medications and blood sugar control. 2) The erectile dysfunction may be a side effect of some blood pressure medications. 3)Quit smoking.
