Viagra and Diabetes

For men who suffer from diabetes and erectile dysfunction or ED, taking Viagra may seem like an easy solution but urologists argue that it may not be that simple. An estimated 50% – 70% of diabetic males are affected by ED, which makes them about three times more likely to experience ED than healthy men. The key to diabetics managing their ED, is to first to manage their diabetes and control their blood sugar. Importantly, if the diabetic does not manage his condition correctly, it could lead to his ED worsening and uncontrolled diabetes can lead to permanent erectile dysfunction.

Diabetic Control is Key

Diabetes has not only causes the sufferer to have erectile dysfunction but it can also cause the penis to decrease in size. Diabetes devastates the penile muscle tissue and causes obstruction to the arteries that supply blood to the organ. Over time this may cause the penis to slowly shrink and the sufferer will find it increasingly difficult to maintain an erection. Males who are diagnosed with ED can control their condition if they carefully manage their diabetes and keep it stabilized. When diabetic males are diagnosed with ED, they are often referred to a cardiologist to test for coronary artery disease.

Oral Medications

The standard treatment for men with erectile dysfunction who have been diagnosed with diabetes, are medications like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. The main difference separating these medications is the duration of effectiveness. Viagra or Sildenafil is manufactured by Pfizer and is proven to be effective for up to five hours. Levitra or Vardenafil is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and has shown effective results for up to 25 hours. The longest lasting of the ED medications is Cialis or Tadalafil, which is manufactured by Eli Lilly and is effective for up to 36 hours.

Other Options

If oral ED medications do not work, other options include vacuum constriction pump devices, penile implants and injections directly into the penis that can be self-administered. Reports suggest that although injections of Alprostadil are relatively painless and effective in 80% of sufferers, most men lose their sexual urge after injecting themselves in the penis. The injections can also cause infection and scarring or fibrosis of the penis. Vacuum pump therapy and injections into the penis have the disadvantage of interrupting the spontaneous foreplay. Diabetics who have penis implants report much better success with a device they manually pump to inflate a cylinder filled with fluid inserted in the penis.
