Is diabetes to blame for your bedroom slump?

by , 20 June 2014

When you were diagnosed with diabetes, I'm sure your first thought was about your weight, your diet, sugar levels and so on. I'm sure you didn't even think about what it would do to your sex life.

But what's going on with your blood sugar can have an impact on how you feel between the sheets. And not in a good way.

The good news, however, is that once you understand how to deal with what's putting a damper on your bedroom activities, you can boost your libido.

Read on for all the info on sex and diabetes.

Defeat Diabetes? Yes you can!
Diabetes IS reversible... But it's what you do about it that counts.

If you're at risk from any of the major diabetes risk factors then you need to act fast.

And if you've already been diagnosed with diabetes, you need to know about safe, natural ways to reverse it, so you can get the diabetes bully off your back once and for all!
Discover how to defeat diabetes without a single drug.

What you need to know about sex and diabetes
The fact is that people with diabetes are at a higher risk of sexual problems. Despite this, only about half of all men with diabetes and 19% of women with diabetes have talked about this with their doctor. That’s why we hardly hear about how diabetes affects sexual health.
It’s not that people with diabetes lose interest in sex, the reason is more physiological. For diabetics, sexual problems can indicate nerve damage, blocked arteries and even out-of-whack hormones.
Although there's a lot we still need to learn about sexual dysfunction in diabetics, researchers are certain of one thing: Chronic high blood glucose is behind many of the sexual problems. 
So what problems do diabetics face in the bedroom?
The most common problems for me are erectile dysfunction (ED), low testosterone and premature ejaculation. The most common for women are vaginal dryness and orgasm problems.
For gents:
Studies have shown that men with diabetes, especially those who have type II diabetes or are overweight, or both, have about twice the risk of low testosterone. When low testosterone is treated through losing weight or testosterone therapy, their desire for sex is renewed.
One of the main sexual problems men with diabetes face is the inability to have an erection. This because damage to the vascular system can weaken blood flow. If the blood vessels aren't working properly or if an artery is blocked, not enough blood will travel to your penis. And this makes it difficult to get an erection.
The best way to combat this is to lower your blood sugar level, by following a healthy diet, but you can also supplement with ginseng. Chinese traditional medicine has used Ginseng for hundreds of years to promote masculine energy. Research shows ginseng reduces stress and anxiety, which are all factors that lead to erectile dysfunction. It may also help support proper hormonal balance and help improve blood flow.
Rediscover amazing sex by boosting your male potency – naturally!
Natural therapies could put you back on the fast track to reclaiming your peak performance in the bedroom in no time… Without silly devices, painful implants, dangerous injections or costly prescription drugs and their side effects.

That's right... You could have that hot spontaneous sex you desire – and you could have it naturally.

For the ladies:
Nerve damage may cause vaginal dryness, which is twice as common in women with diabetes as it is in women without diabetes.
Because researchers don't understand exactly why women's bodies lose the ability to self-lubricate (when menopause isn't the cause), there are very few treatment options. That’s why experts recommend using a lubricant.
Women with diabetes are also at a greater risk for urinary tract infections and vaginal yeast infections, which, in turn, may lead to painful sex. But you can lower your chances of getting a urinary tract infections or yeast infection by keeping your blood glucose under good control.
Here are a couple of tips to naturally boost your sexual drive
When you have diabetes, what used to work in the bedroom may not work now, so consider making some changes. 
Research shows exercise plays a role in reversing diabetes symptoms and also works wonders for your sex life by strengthening your heart, improving flexibility and stamina  and increasing blood flow to those all-important areas. You don’t have to go out and run a marathon, low impact exercise does just as well.
There’s evidence that shows that eating certain foods can have a positive effect on your sex drive. Zinc helps to enhance your libido by helping produce testosterone which increases desire. So, add some oysters to your menu, they have more zinc than any other food. Other good sources of zinc are red meat, crab and cashews.
Managing your diabetes well, including eating healthy, exercising regularly and reducing stress will benefit your entire body including your nether regions.
