If you're concerned about how diabetes may be impacting your erectile function, this video is for you. Learn about the potential link between the two and what you can do to protect your sexual health.

#### Can Diabetes Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance. Many men experience occasional episodes of ED, but for some men, it is a more persistent problem that can have a profound effect on quality of life.

While the exact cause of ED is not known, it is often associated with other health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, low testosterone levels, nerve damage, and psychological problems.

Diabetes is a common cause of ED. Men with diabetes are three times more likely to develop ED than men without diabetes. Diabetes can damage the blood vessels and nerves that are needed for an erection. In addition, diabetes can also cause low testosterone levels and reduce sexual desire.

If you have diabetes and are experiencing ED, it is important to see your doctor. There are a number of treatment options available that can help you manage your ED and improve your quality of life.

Male impotence and erectile dysfunction are common in men with diabetes because of the restricting effect diabetes has upon blood flow.

In this short film the link between erectile dysfunction and diabetes is explored. It is explained that because diabetes can restrict blood flow around the body, this can make it difficult for men with diabetes to achieve an erection as blood flow to the penis is restricted.

The video also highlights that there are drugs and advice available from healthcare practices which can help with male impotence. It does however emphasise the importance of assessing whether a lack of diabetic control is leading to erectile dysfunction.
