Men with diabetes suffer more from some diabetes-related health problems than women. The American Diabetes Association reports that:

In people who develop diabetes before the age of 30, men develop retinopathy (a vision disorder that can lead to blindness) more quickly than women.

Having the main symptoms of peripheral vascular disease (pain in the thigh, calf, or buttocks during exercise) is linked to a two- to three-fold increased risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, or cardiac failure in men with diabetes.

Amputation rates from diabetes-related problems are 1.4 to 2.7 times higher in men than women with diabetes.

Men with diabetes also face special concerns like impotence (not being able to have or keep an erection). Men with diabetes can help prevent impotence by:

  • controlling blood sugar levels
  • not worrying (fear of becoming impotent can sometimes be the cause)
  • not drinking large amounts of alcohol, which can cause impotence
  • not smoking, (smoking causes blood vessels to narrow, which can lead to impotence)

Facts About Erectile Dysfunction
Damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues, often as a result of diseases, such as diabetes, kidney disease, chronic alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, vascular disease, and neurologic disease, account for about 70 percent of ED cases.

Does Weight Really Matter?
Does it really matter whether the reason behind obesity's link to health problems is a result of the weight itself or the lifestyle habits that caused it? Yes, because the answer determines how to best approach the problem.

Why Fiber Is Important To Your Diet
Diabetes 101: What can fiber do for you? Numerous studies found that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber are associated with a reduced risk of certain cancers, diabetes, digestive disorders, and heart disease.

Alcoholic Beverages and Diabetes
Most people with diabetes can drink alcohol safely if they drink in moderation (one or two drinks occasionally), because in higher quantities alcohol can cause health problems.
