According to a new research, over fifty per cent of male diabetic patients struggle to get or maintain an erection. It turns out that those suffering from type 2 diabetes suffer more with over sixty percent of them having erectile dysfunction as compared to the 37.5 percent with type 1.

Researchers have already shown how diabetes can damage nerves and blood vessels that are required to be aroused and feel that the new study will encourage early erectile screening and interventions among men who suffer from diabetes.

 

Researchers from University of Padova in Italy investigated the link between diabetes and erectile dysfunction and found that it significantly increases a man’s risk of suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Male patients can struggle to get or maintain an erection regardless of whether they produce the necessary hormones or are sufficiently sexually stimulated if they are suffering from diabetes.

The researchers hope their findings will encourage erectile screening and interventions among men with diabetes.
