Diabetes and Sex
No More ‘Sadi-betes’
People suffering from diabetes are bogged down by many issues and concerns. Adding sexual problems to the already overloaded list is like the straw that broke the camel’s back!
Some diabetics are already feeling low self-esteem, may be suffering from depression, feeling like a burden on their families and partners, lead a restrictive life in relation to a lot of perceived things. Some people may be overweight, feel unattractive and this could put a dampener on one’s sex life. Likewise, if there are problems in the sex life this can result in frustration, anxiety and depression, all of which will be all the more detrimental to manage diabetes.
It has been found that in some instances, diabetes can adversely affect sexual performance. It has been suggested that up to 50% of men and 25% of women may experience certain kinds of sexual problems or a decreased sexual drive as a result of diabetes.
A 2010 study in the journal of Diabetes Care found that, even though people with diabetes are at a greater risk for sexual problems, only about half of all men with diabetes and 19 percent of women with diabetes have approached the doctor for guidance. This reluctance to see the doctor and to broach this subject, is because doctors themselves are not comfortable discussing patients’ inability to sexually perform.
Diabetes and Sex
We can dia-beat-this!
It is vital for people to be open, honest and forthcoming about all their health concerns in relation to the disease. Inability to perform sexually or decreased sexual desires are also concerns which need to be addressed. Truth is, many doctors don’t feel comfortable prodding patients for details on sexual function. This shying away from sex and sex-related concerns need to change as we live in a progressive society and speaking one’s mind is the first step ahead.
