Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

Men suffering from both Erectile Dysfunction and Diabetes, typicall have a Vasculogenic cause to their ED.  The small blood vessels are damaged. This type of Erectile Dysfunction is particularly receptive to a Newer,Non Medication Therapy for ED.  Shock Wave Therapy can produce new healthier blood vessels. Studies confirm this new ED treatment can greatly improve function even in men who have failed pills like Viagra or Cialis.  CLICK HERE to Learn More about Shock Wave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction.

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Nearly all men with diabetes will eventually experience some degree of ED. This condition affects everything a man needs to get and keep an erection. The blood vessels to the penis are less healthy and respond less vigorously to nerve stimulation. The nerves themselves don't conduct impulses as well. The sensation at the penis may be less. Changes in proteins in the blood can lead to less "free" circulating testosterone. This all adds up to a high likelihood of ED.

Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

If you have diabetes, making every effort to control your sugar level through diet, exercise and compliance with medication will help lessen the extent of sexual problems, as well as lessen your chances of having a heart attack or stroke, or of having kidney or eye damage. Unfortunately though, because diabetes is a metabolic problem, the Erectile Dysfunction often persists.

If you have tried tablets for Erectile Dysfunction and they haven't improved your erections, don't give up. There are stronger treatments that can be very effective and rewarding.

At OMH we welcome all men with diabetes. The majority can be successfully treated to enjoy a healthy sex life again. We also encourage all our clients with diabetes to take control of their condition, so they can enjoy a longer, healthier life.


I know that sex is supposed to be one of the most enjoyable parts of life, but I always found it stressful. Usually I would ejaculate just as my wife and I were getting started. After awhile I wasn't even getting good erections. My wife always smiled and did her best to make me feel that it didn't matter, but I could sense disappointment. I tried to achieve more at work to make up the difference. I finally got up the nerve to see a doctor after reading something in a magazine. I had it all wrong. With some simple treatment and practice, things have improved dramatically for my wife and I. Now we are both smiling.

My wife and I were getting along OK, but we had slipped into a routine of avoiding sex because it was awkward for both of us when I couldn't perform. We just put it down to age and moved on. One day I just decided to look into it further, and let me tell you, don't let anyone tell you that you need to give up sex just because of your age. Our life is much more complete now than it has been in years. Get help today. My wife and I are so glad we did.
