Why are men with diabetes prone to an increased rate of ED?

Diabetes is a disease which affects the body’s ability. The body does not produce any or enough insulin at all, to regulate blood glucose levels there’s sufficient insulin, but the body is not able to utilize it. While this part is understood by caregivers and remedies with activity, diet, pills or insulin lead to control, the connection between ED and diabetes is not quite so straightforward. Might a person with diabetes have ED? With time, the blood vessel problems and damage which may be present with diabetes might create a deterioration of erection quality in addition to the causes of ED. From the man that is healthy, the procedure for receiving an erection is dependent upon male hormones, stimulation and nerves and blood vessels working. Erection messages are transmitted from spinal cord and the brain to the penis by means of a group of nerves, and they instruct the blood vessels in the penis. The damage brought on by diabetes into blood flow and the nervous system isn’t totally known, but what is known is that the process interferes with nerve wracking from the mechanisms. The blood vessels in the penis could be damaged that an erection can’t be maintained, if the nerves operate well. Both of these changes are the primary reasons.
