In men, the most common sexual involvement is erectile dysfunction, which occurs between 10 and 15 years earlier in those with diabetes. Even Dr. Moncada explained that the first problems could appear at an early age if there is poor glycemic control. So the first and most essential thing is to control diabetes.
After conducting a small survey, we have seen that the average age is 58 years. This does not mean that at 58 years old you will have erectile dysfunction if it will not depend a lot on the care and control of diabetes.
The doctor also explained that between 36 and 60 years, more than 50% have problems of this type and, after 70, it affects almost 100% of people with diabetes, but it also affects many who do not have it. Age is the number one risk factor for erection problems, but in the case of diabetes, premature aging of tissues leads to these types of problems occurring earlier.
In the surveys carried out, we have seen that it affects both men with type 1 diabetes and type 2 in the same way.
For that reason, you do not have to be scared if you have this type of problem, it is something more common than you think. In any case, the most important thing is to know how to deal with it. If you have doubts about whether you may be having erectile dysfunction, you can check it out by simply doing this little test.
