How Does Diabetes Affect Your Sex Life


According to Healthline“, Erotic desire, is a real problem and one that affects people with diabetes more than those without. Men and women experience low fertility as a result of poorly managed diabetes. If your copulation drive is stalled, first look at your diabetes management and take steps to lower your blood glucose levels. However, here is how diabetes affects your lovemaking life.

Erectile dysfunction and diabetes

Erectile dysfunction is when you have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection hard enough for intercourse. The causes of erectile dysfunction can be physical, psychological, or a mixture of both.

Diabetes and low testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone that is needed for normal reproductive and erotic function. If you have type 2 diabetes, you’re more likely than normal to have a low testosterone level. You’re even more likely to have testosterone problems if you’re diabetic and also overweight. Low energy levels, mood swings, irritability, poor concentration, reduced muscle strength, and low copulation drive are symptoms of low testosterone, but they are also symptoms of other illnesses.
