More than 30 million Americas – 9.4% of the population – are thought to have diabetes – and about a quarter of them don’t know it. Equally alarming, some 84 million Americans are considered to be in a pre-diabetes condition. This serious medical condition can have a huge impact upon a person’s health – and upon a man’s male organ health as well. Knowing how diabetes can affect male organ function is valuable information for every man. |
Although diabetes affects both men and women, men between the ages of 35 and 55 are twice as likely as women to develop diabetes. That’s alarming, as the likelihood of diabetes continues to increase with age – and since male organ function already tends to diminish with age, it means that diabetes may make male organ health issues increase that much more.
As many men already know, diabetes is a medical condition that affects the way the body uses glucose (also called blood sugar). Blood sugar provides energy to muscles, tissue and the brain. People with diabetes need help regulating their blood sugar. When it gets too high, it can cause numerous problems, including heart disease, nerve damage (also called neuropathy), vision issues (including blindness), foot problems, and skin conditions. And, of course, there can be male organ function and health effects as well.
Male organ function and health problems
What are some of the common male organ issues related to diabetes? They include:
- Tumescence dysfunction. Most men place tumescence dysfunction high on the list of problems they dread – so men really need to keep diabetes away if they want to keep their tumescence male organ function normal. More than half of men with diabetes come down with tumescence dysfunction as well, which means they are 3 times as likely to get it. The reasons why are complicated, but it essentially comes down to nerve damage to the member and to poor circulation issues as well.
- Bent manhood. Many men have some slight curvature in their member; indeed, many people find a degree of curvature aesthetically pleasing. But when the male organ is bent to an extreme so that it impedes function and/or causes pain, it means a man has a condition known as Peyronie’s disease. And diabetic men are more likely to develop this bent manhood syndrome than men without.
- Thrush. A male yeast infection of the manhood is known as thrush – and diabetes increases the risk of thrush occurring. This is because high blood sugar makes for a more hospitable environment for yeast to grow and populate.
- Low male hormone. Studies have shown that men with diabetes are more likely to have lower male hormone, although whether this is a result of the diabetes itself or of risk factors for diabetes (such as obesity) is unclear. Low male hormone not only contributes to tumescence function issues but tends to be associated with a diminished libido as well.
- Retrograde seed release. Although still rare, retrograde seed release is a complication associated with diabetes. In this condition, some or all of a man’s male seed is waylaid into the bladder rather than dispersed through the member.
Diabetes is a very serious condition and requires working with a doctor to determine the best course of treatment. Monitoring blood sugar levels regularly is required, and often medication must be administered by the patients themselves to keep blood sugar at the appropriate healthy level.
Male organ function can be impacted by diabetes as well as by poor general male organ health, so using a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can be beneficial. The best cremes will contain L-arginine, an amino acid which plays a role in the body’s production of nitric oxide. This in turn helps make it possible for male organ blood vessels to expand when they need to accommodate increase in blood volume. The crème selected should also include vitamin C, which is also helpful in maintaining appropriate blood flow.
