Avoid the Risk of ED by Preventing Blood Sugar Spikes

High blood sugar levels, especially high levels that go unmanaged for long periods of time, can cause Erectile Dysfunction and impact your life beyond the bedroom. Here’s how to keep yourself healthy.

Blood Sugar and ED

One of the biggest causes of Erectile Dysfunction is the effects of ongoing high blood sugar levels. Having high blood sugar levels is a prominent characteristic in men with Type 2 Diabetes. Because of the negative effects caused by high blood sugar, men with Diabetes are 3 times more likely to suffer from Erectile Dysfunction issues.

The root cause of Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow. This is how it works: When there is a spike in blood sugar, less nitric oxide is produced in the body. Nitric oxide is an important vascular regulator needed for healthy blood flow. When levels are low, it prevents strong blood flow to the penis that can cause temporary Erectile Dysfunction. When high blood sugar levels go unmanaged over a long period of time, this causes more permanent damage – damage to both nerves and blood vessels in the body and the penis. As the vascular system breaks down, strong blood flow becomes impossible and the Erectile Dysfunction symptoms become more intense.


Ways to Keep Your Blood Sugar Levels in Check

Keeping your blood sugar levels under control isn’t just important for your sexual function; it helps improve your body’s health as a whole. Here are some of the best ways that you can take control of your blood sugar!

· A healthy diet is the most important factor. A balanced diet of lean protein, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates that are high in fiber can help regulate sugar levels.

· Exercise regularly. It not only helps your vascular system, but it also helps to manage a healthy weight.

· Stress management is key. Stress hormones can lead to a spike in blood sugar.

· Drink more water. Water helps to flush out excess sugar and keep your body regulated.

The CDC also warns that sunburns, coffee, loss of sleep, skipping breakfast, and gum disease can also trigger spikes in blood sugar.

Non-Invasive Treatment for ED Caused by High Blood Sugar Levels

Erectile Dysfunction is caused by poor blood flow and a breakdown of the blood vessels and nerves to the penis. This can be caused by unmanaged blood sugar levels.

This proven treatment effectively and painlessly treats Erectile Dysfunction by revitalizing damaged blood vessels and stimulating new blood vessel growth, helping to reverse the damage caused by high blood sugar.
