Erectile Dysfunction Affects Up to 50% of Diabetics

This study confirms something I’ve seen over and over again in the clinic. 50% of men with diabetes also experience erectile dysfunction. Hypertension makes this even worse in my experience. The summary is in the findings reported by Diabetic Medicine.

Healthy arteries with good muscle tone are needed for a healthy penis (and a healthy heart/kidney). Diabetes causes these middle-sized arteries to not expand as they should. When blood flow is reduced, erectile dysfunction becomes obvious.
