Hello friends,

Thanks for joining me again on lybrate And I hope my previous videos are very helpful to you for understanding your disease and for personal education about your physical fitness. Today, I’m going to touch a very taboo topic, a topic which is always discussed under wraps the topic of diabetes and impotence. Impotence is not about sterility. Sterility and impotence are two different things, impotence is the inability of a partner to satisfy its partner on sexual basic, sterility is the difficulty in the ability to have production, reproduction and that is a very important topic that I’m going to discuss today diabetes and impotence. Well, a lot of my patients of diabetes always have a query that doctor, how is diabetes going to affect my sex life, well my answer to you is yes diabetes is going to affect your sex life is not one but many ways. first of all diabetes in itself is a problem that leads to nerve dysfunction and in spite of getting stimulated some people in diabetes in later stages who got diabetes uncontrolled for very long, they start to develop a problem by the name of erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is a problem in which after maximal stimulation a man is not able to have a proper erection and this problem actually comes up out of the nervous system problems that happen because of the uncontrolled blood sugar level well, don’t get me wrong I don’t want to imply here that only diabetes is the reason because of people develop erectile dysfunction but diabetes is a very important reason because of which people develop erectile dysfunction. The second problem that people with diabetes may develop because they can have an effect on their sex life is about premature ejaculation.

Premature ejaculation is the lack of stamina in continuing the sexual act and the culmination of the sexual act by ejaculation which is premature and this means that a patient is not able to have a sexual satisfaction with his partner and neither does the partner achieve complete satisfaction because the male partner has ejaculated and there is no further stamina left for the continuation of the sexual act. I don’t understand that these people who have these problems of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation they are more concerned about the sexual factor affecting them rather than diabetes that is affecting them but they have to understand that the core problem is the uncontrolled blood sugar, if they are able to control their blood sugar then probably they will be able have the cure and a solution to both these problems. Also, the second thing that is very baffling to me is the fact that most of the people who are suffering from these kind of sexual problems they go to quacks and people who are unqualified to the solution of their problems. well, I believe that if you confy in your doctor and go to a doctor who is qualified to handle this problem then probably you will get a better solution and a better cure of your problem rather than going to somebody who is going to provide you obscure desi medicine who doesn’t even have the qualification to cure it and in spite of that the people are streaming to these unqualified people rather than the doctor who may provide them the scientific solution to their problem ,having said that I will also like to recommend you that you can also make use of the online consults that are available on lybrate which will help you at least get a customize solution to your problem without having to go to people who are going to mess up your life because they don’t themselves know that what they are going to give as a medicine to you so don’t go to those people who are not qualified that’s my humble submission to you and I believe you will enjoy a very healthy life ahead of you and try to understand that it is actually the control of blood sugar that is paramount in the control of your sex life thank you very much and thanks for joining it.
