Diabetes is a disease that unfortunately occurs extremely often. Many people do not even know that they are suffering from this condition and therefore do not receive adequate treatment, which can have disastrous consequences. In addition, the disease has a negative impact on the functioning of the entire body. One example is the effect of diabetes on potency.
Symptoms of diabetes
Diabetes is a disease that can be recognized by fairly visible symptoms. Among those that occur most often are mentioned:
- frequent urination,
- fatigue and apathy,
- various intimate infections,
- Continuous drowsiness,
- increased thirst,
- ...hunger attacks,
- skin lesions, such as mycosis.
These symptoms are characteristic for both types of diabetes, but autoimmune diabetes, i.e. type 1, also manifests itself in weight loss or in the corners of the patient's mouth. All these aspects are quite burdensome, but they do not necessarily mean that the disease is developing. It will therefore be necessary to visit a specialist who will order a number of tests to confirm or reject the hypothetical diagnosis.
Diabetes is the enemy of potency - why?
Type 2 diabetes - that is, one that occurs much more often and is also known as a civilization disease - can have many consequences. It is the result of an abnormal lifestyle. It is much more common for people who avoid activity and do not eat properly. Obese people who have excess body fat are particularly at risk. Unfortunately, quick access to unhealthy food or sitting in front of a computer makes type 2 diabetes diagnosed in younger and younger people. It used to appear in people around sixty years old, but now it is going to appear in thirty-year-olds.
The diagnosis is quite clear from the blood results of the patient, which will certainly be ordered by any family doctor. Elevated blood sugar is very dangerous, so oral medication is used to quickly eliminate it. Over time, insulin is also taken in injections.
Diabetes has a negative impact on many life situations. Weakness, apathy and constant fatigue effectively hinder normal functioning of everyone. One of the frequent consequences of diabetes is also the erection problem. According to statistics, impotence affects up to seventy men who suffer from diabetes. Sugar, which is stored in the veins, also damages the nerves and blood vessels, which has a direct effect on the functioning of the sexual system.
The consequences of untreated diabetes may also occur in another form. Hyperglycaemia can lead to kidney damage or atherosclerosis. This type of conditions threatens not only health, but also life - the risk of heart attack or stroke is also increasing.
Detection of diabetes early enough and its treatment may effectively eliminate its effects. Visiting a doctor is therefore a necessity - even if you only notice a few of these symptoms..
