For Men with Diabetes
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. 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)
