Its not necessary that someone gets diabetes just because he/she eats a lot of sugars or stuff containing sugar. There are other factors too that play a role as you have already mentioned. But controlling what you consume definitely goes a long way in preventing one from getting it.

Welcome to HCM forum
Eating sugar ice-cream candy will not exposed to diabetes. But these things causes weight gain and leads to diabetes. Diabetes most commonly type 2 diabetes is related to genetic. Environment factor. Lack of Activity. Stress. Obesity. So try to acquire healthy lifestyle.

I also have urgency urination,more so than frequent. I just feel out of it all the time now as if I have a hard time concentrating and wake up feeling tired as also going to bed exhausted. I want to thnk everyone for their input and concerns. I did see the Doctor yesterday and I had blood work done for numerous things including Diabetes , no results yet. I was at a friends house after work tonight and he took my sugar level and it was 100, this was without eating since last night.Still waiting on the Doctors results of tests done.

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.
