Brief Answer: check free serum testosterone with sugar control Detailed Answer: Hello 40-70 % of people with diabetes have some kind of sexual problem. The cause of sex problem in Diabetes are- 1-loss of elasticity of cavernous smooth muscles so there is poor effect of N2O on arousal 2-there is deposition of cholesterol and damage to blood vessels in penis so blood supply is reduced at the time of erection. this is the reason of reduced hardness 3-Associated stress causes early ejaculation 4- There is loss of sensations due to damage to autonomic nerves so excitement is reduced , causing less hardness and pleasure The treatment is- 1- particular about the control of diabetes with all dietary and life style changes to be observed as advised by doctor. Please check your sugar levels and if its abnormal you need to set it right as soon as possible. 2- 30 minutes brisk walk daily 3- Eliminating and controlling all other risk factors as you would do for a cardiac problem 4- Yoga asana for stretching, increasing endurance and mental relaxation 5- Besides the above, I also suggest you to check for Free Serum Testosterone level at 9 AM as diabetic patients have reduced testosterone in more than half patients, it worsens the control of diabetes and add actively to sex problems. 6- Avoid smoking Good Luck DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA
