Diabetes and Men's Sexual Health





Erectile Dysfunction refers to an inability to achieve or maintain an erection hard enough for sexual intercourse. It falls under the blanket term impotence, which also covers other sexual problems such as lack of arousal and the inability to orgasm. Erectile dysfunction is not simply an occasional inability to perform sexually that occurs to every man; if you have erectile dysfunction, you will be unable to achieve or maintain an erection over 50% of the time.

Although erectile dysfunction often occurs with age, it is not a normal part of aging and can be treated. For men with diabetes, erectile dysfunction occurs an average of 10-15 years earlier than in other men.

Why does diabetes often lead to erectile dysfunction? Diabetes is linked with many nervous system disorders, and erectile dysfunction can be caused by nerve damage. Nervous system damage can cause erectile dysfunction because the nervous system tells your body when you are aroused. If you are emotionally aroused but your nervous system cannot send the message to your penis, then you will not get an erection. Diabetes can also cause blood vessel disorder. Vascular damage (damage to the blood vessels) alters the blood flow in the body. As an erection is caused when corpora cavernosa in the penis are filled with blood, vascular damage can affect erections. Erections are caused by the interplay of the nervous system and the vascular system, along with other factors.

People with diabetes are more apt to be depressed. Depression might be caused by poor blood sugar control and hormonal imbalance. Psychological factors can play a large role in erectile dysfunction.

How can you prevent erectile dysfunction if you have diabetes? 

Control your blood sugar levels. This will help you prevent possible nerve damage or damage to your vascular system. These are two of the complications from diabetes that can lead to erectile dysfunction.

Talk to you doctor or health team. They will be particularly helpful for you if you are trying to maintain even blood sugar.

Quit smoking. Smoking damages your blood vessels by making them contract.

Don't drink excessively. Excessive alcohol consumption can also damage your blood vessels.

Exercise. Having a steady exercise regimen will help keep your nervous system and vascular system healthy.

Eat well. Eating a well-balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables has been proven to prevent complications in diabetes, and will help you control your blood sugar levels.

Calm yourself. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other psychological issue that is inhibiting your sexual performance, see a professional. Often just the fear of erectile dysfunction is enough to hamper performance.

Treatments
If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, consider seeing a urologist. A urologist specializes in sexual health and will be able to help you decide on the best treatment program. You might be prescribed medication, such as Viagra, that will help you achieve an erection. You might also consider using a vacuum pump to help blood enter the penis. To maintain the erection you place a ring at the base of the penis. You might consider having an implant or penile injections.

You can also opt for Herbal treatments like Vajikarana Therapy

Before taking any medical action, try using the tips above to manage your erectile dysfunction. Diabetes does not necessarily have to lead to complications, which includes erectile dysfunction. You can lead a normal sexual life, even as you grow older. Knowing this information might help you find sexual energy you didn't know you had!

Proven Tips to Cure Your Erectile Dysfunction



The First Tip: Do not panic and jump at the first quick fix on offer.

When you first experienced erectile dysfunction your initial reaction may well have been one of great alarm, great concern and near panic. This initial reaction is understandable of course but unfortunately, it may also be disabling. Fear and alarm may already have driven you into the Internet to try to find a ready solution. These are shark-infested waters at the best of times, nowhere however is this better exemplified than in the area of so-called "natural" cures for erectile dysfunction. These, usually herbal, readies have three major drawbacks:

• Totally unqualified individuals are offering them for sale on the internet.
• They do not work, or at best only work partially.
• No attempt is being made at diagnosing the cause of your particular erectile dysfunction. One size is supposed to fit all.

So, if you have already been down this road of false promises and can vouch for the validity of what I am saying here, then do not worry, thousands have been there before you. It is now however time to make a fresh start.

The Second Tip: Make some life style changes for a start. (Also read  Daily routine to overcome erectile dysfunction )
If you smoke or drink alcohol heavily, consider quitting. If you live a sedentary existence and take no exercise, consider a training program to loose a little weight and get a bit fitter. If you are in a stressful job or personal relationship is there anything, you can do to alleviate those tensions like changing your job or ending your relationship.

The Third Tip: Discuss your problem with a specialist.

You will need to diagnose the underlying cause of your problem. This is essential. Erectile dysfunction is not a condition that lends itself to self-medication and self-treatment. It is not like having a head cold or something where you can just pick something up at your corner store and expect that you will get better. This is an area where you are going to need professional guidance. This should come from, not just any old doctor or councillor, but from a therapist who specialises in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Fourth and Final Tip: There are two important things that you should know about erectile dysfunction today and they are both good news:

(1) Over 35% of all erectile dysfunction, from whatever cause or occurring in whatever age group resolves itself over time without any treatment.

(2) ALL erectile dysfunction, regardless of cause, severity or age of onset, is treatable and manageable today without having to resort to vacuum pumps or surgical prosthesis. There never has been so many modules of treatment and with very little effort and a bit of help from me, you can find the one that best suited your particular needs today.

5 Simple Steps to Start Your Weight Loss Program






Remember there's more to you than meets the eye. You've got personality, brains, feelings... in short, all those things that make you, YOU. So why diet? After all, you're more than just a body, and things that really matter can't be measured on a scale.

That said, there are some very good sound reasons for dieting. After all, dieting is not just for weight loss or weight gain. No, the true meaning of 'diet' is in choosing foods and setting eating habits that will keep you healthy, strong, and feeling your best. It takes planning and dedication. It means setting goals and following through. But it doesn't have to be a chore. No, with the right tools it can even be fun ... especially when you start to see the results that you're looking for!

Before, choosing a diet, there are five extremely simple Steps, which if you really apply you will probably end up losing weight without even trying! Doesn't that sound interesting. Really No kidding ... try the following:

Step 1) Always sit down when you eat, preferable at a table. Don't eat while standing, walking, driving or talking on the phone.

Step 2) Don't read or watch television while you eat.

Step 3) Eat only when your stomach is empty. At least 3 to 4 hours from your last meal.

Step 4) Don't take a bite until you've already swallowed the previous bite. Obvious? Try observing people and you'll see them stuffing their mouths, which are still full. They probably talk at the same time! So, bite, chew, swallow, bite, chew, swallow.

Step 5) Don't eat when you're not hungry. No, I'm being serious and I know that this sounds stupid. For example when at home wait 5 minutes before taking second helpings. If you wait, you'll probably find that you're no longer hungry, whereas if you don't wait you could probably eat thirds! Remember ... Wait five minutes before taking more.

A good diet doesn't end when you finally reach your target goal. Maintaining good nutrition, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle is a continuing process. Only this will give you the energy to face the challenges of your busy day, boost your self-image, and make you look and feel better.
And there's no feeling like the satisfaction when you achieve your goals by sticking to a sensible, healthy, diet plan.

Besides, where would we be without food? Changing your diet to prevent or reverse heart disease, reduce your blood pressure, or to get the better of your diabetes and, naturally to reach your desired weight, is not just a matter of cutting out butter and eggs and counting the amount of fat grams you eat each day. For instance, most Americans get close to 40% of their calories from fat! This is twice the recommended amount if you already suffer from heart disease.

There are many misconceptions and confusion concerning fat these days, some seem to make sense, others are just plain dumb! Remember, concerning fat, several things are now known for sure. It is known that most of us eat too much fat and that obesity is a major health concern, increasing the risk for heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, back pain and cancer. It is also known that saturated fat, more than anything else, is responsible for increasing our cholesterol levels.

I know it's weird, but it's been found, ironically, that when people focus exclusively on eliminating cholesterol from their daily diet they may unknowingly move on to a diet high in saturated fats! Some people decide to become vegetarian, leaving out meat and eggs, but the salad dressings, nuts and peanut butter, for instance, do more damage than a lean steak! Message: be careful what you eat, you may be surprised.
