Health is wealth.
Historically, men have not been comfortable discussing issues about their health, particularly conditions like diabetes, depression or sexual dysfunction. This has resulted in shorter and less healthy lives for men in the United States compared to women.
It’s important to talk about any concerns you may have. Sexual dysfunction can be a warning sign of other health problems. Just like complications of the heart, eyes, kidneys and nerves are related to blood vessel damage, so is diabetes-related sexual dysfunction. Also, by sharing your concerns, your health care provider can help treat specific sexual problems.
