Remedy For Erectile Dysfunction Caused by Diabetes

Hi Jon, I have diabetes type 2 and erectile dysfunction. Is it linked and is it caused by my condition or medication for diabetes? I’m sick of having erection problems. I can’t stay hard for the wife even though I want to. This is not great for us. I need a remedy for this somehow. Will your male libido booster program work well for me?

Type 2 diabetes is a “disease” that is affectingly increasingly high numbers of men and women throughout the world.

I am constantly contacted by men suffering from diabetes who have serious erection problems, due in part to their poor health and in part due to the side effects of the medication that doctors prescribe to treat diabetes.

What I find ridiculous is that this “disease” and its symptoms can be reversed in most people by simply exercising more and choosing foods more carefully.

And yes, this means that you shouldn’t need those meds ever again (obviously ask your doctor when the time is right to stop).

First Of All, A Few Words About Diabetes..

Diabetes mellitus is a condition that affects large numbers of people around the world.  The most common indication that a person has the condition is high blood sugar, and the exact cause of this will depend on the form of diabetes that is present. 

Type 1 diabetes, also referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes, usually has an onset that occurs during childhood, and is a result of the pancreas not producing insulin (or producing levels that are too low to keep the blood sugar under control). 

Type 2 diabetes, which may be referred to as adult-onset diabetes, is due to the body developing a resistance to insulin, and therefore not responding to it in the usual manner.  It is also possible for women to develop the symptoms of diabetes during pregnancy, even when they are not normally affected.  This is called gestational diabetes.

For type 2 diabetes in particular, because the body has become resistant to insulin, it is necessary to control the blood sugar primarily through changes to the diet.  The use of insulin injections is not effective for this form of the disease, although they are needed for patients with type 1 diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic disease, and once the symptoms have developed, it may be necessary to have lifelong management and treatment. Lifestyle changes will be extremely important when it comes to managing the symptoms.

How To Reverse Diabetes And See Your Erections Improve Fast

Changes in what you are eating will be an important part of managing your condition.  There is some debate over what is the most appropriate diet for a person with diabetes, but it is usually considered necessary to reduce the intake of carbohydrates.  This includes both sugars, which are simple carbohydrates, and starchy foods, which are broken down into sugars by the digestive system.

It is usually advisable to stay away from foods that have a high glycaemic index (GI), because these release energy very quickly and will cause a spike in blood sugar.  This will lead to the onset of symptoms that are associated with high blood glucose.

It is also a good idea to reduce the intake of saturated fat, because type 2 diabetes is very closely linked to obesity.  The majority of people who develop this form of diabetes are classified as overweight or obese.  Being overweight is one of the biggest risk factors, and can largely be prevented by following a healthy diet.

Saturated fat is found in large quantities in processed foods, which also usually contain lots of sugar.  Red meat is also high in saturated fat.  Cutting down on these two food groups will help to reduce your weight, and this can help to minimise the symptoms of diabetes.  In many cases, the body will become more responsive to insulin and naturally reduce the severity of a disease as a result.

Increasing the amount of exercise that you do is also a good way to help bring your weight back under control. Even a brisk walk each day will provide exercise and, over time, you will start to notice a difference.  This will also reduce the risk of some of the complications of diabetes, such as ulcers on the feet.

Intense workouts should also be considered, especially once you start to lose some excess weight and feel more active and fit.

Eating on a regular basis is key to maintaining your blood sugar at a steady level.  Don’t be tempted to skip meals, as this will lead to a dip in your blood sugar and cause you to crave sweet items.  You should make sure that you eat breakfast every day, as this will prevent the levels from dropping too low.  Diabetic patients are often advised to base meals around low GI carbohydrates, which release energy slowly throughout the day.

Brown rice, pasta and bread are all examples of low GI carbohydrates, although the more refined white varieties should be avoided, as they are broken down into sugar too quickly.

Cutting down on the amount of sugar and salt that you consume is something you should attempt to do.  If you normally add sugar to your tea or coffee, then the best way to stop is to gradually reduce the amount each time.  This will be easier than an abrupt change.  Salt should also be reduced.  When you are cooking, you should think about replacing salt with a variety of herbs and spices to flavour your food.

Some herbs and spices are reported to have beneficial effects on the symptoms of diabetes, by reducing blood sugar naturally.  You should be aware that if you are taking medications for your case of diabetes, there can be some interactions between these and the herbs.  Speak to your doctor for advice, or you may find that your blood sugar begins to drop to dangerously low levels.

Some herbs that you may want to consider using include:

  • Garlic.  Although studies on this common herb have been limited, it has shown a positive result in reducing blood glucose levels.  It is also thought to boost the production of insulin and reduce the rate at which it is broken down.  This can lead to cells in the body responding more effectively to the hormone, taking up glucose from the bloodstream and using it to produce energy.  You will find that you are less tired, as a result.
  • Ginseng.  There are several varieties of this herb, and they are known to boost energy.  It has also been reported that the type known as American ginseng has led to decreases in fasting blood sugar levels, although further research is needed to verify these reports.
  • Fenugreek.  This herb is widely used in certain parts of the world, most notably India and the Mediterranean.  Studies have been carried out, and it has been shown to improve the blood sugar levels in the majority of patients.  Fenugreek has been used in Ayurvedic treatment as well as being a common cooking ingredient.  It is likely that further research will be carried out on this herb, as it appears to be the most effective natural treatment for diabetes.

There are a number of other common herbs and spices that can be used in reducing blood glucose, although the reports have not been investigated and verified by clinical trials.  Cinnamon and ginger have also been suggested as having some beneficial effects.

You should discuss any natural remedies you are considering with your doctor and, ideally a dietician, before you start to make any changes. This should help you to avoid any episodes of hypoglycaemia, which can be just as dangerous as high blood sugar levels, or hyperglycaemia.

Overall, by making a number of changes to your diet, you should be able to control your blood sugar more effectively.

By engaging in regular intense exercise as well (5 times per week) you might be able to reverse diabetes and get your healthy, hard erections back to how  they should be.
