Long standing high blood glucose due to Diabetes adversely affects the nerves, they lose their ability to properly conduct nerve signals. In a complication of Diabetes called Diabetic autonomic neuropathy, this may happen to nerves supplying the blood vessels of the male sexual organ - penis, hence even after appropriate sexual stimulation the corpus callosum ( a spongy area inside the penis which gets filled up with blood and causes erection ) does not adequately get filled up and erection does not take place- leading to impotence.

Approximately 50% of men with long standing Diabetes also have Erectile dysfunction ( impotence). In case of any such complaints efforts should be made to strictly control Blood Sugar levels and take appropriate Diabetes treatment .

Comprehensive Diabetes treatment involves identification and treatment of erectile Dysfunction early in the course of disease- as it may adversely affect the self confidence and relationships in the family- all worsening Diabetes control and aggravating problems.

Men

Males may have infections of the foreskin as well as  the sensitive areas of penis, this may cause discharge and pain in the sensitive male organ, adversely affecting the sexual capability. Diabetes may be the cause of Chronic infections of the penis and its foreskin-called - balanitis or balanoposthitis, which may be due to fungus, virus or bacterias; these may have been caused due to an affected partner as well.

Erectile dysfunction in men due to diabetes is often undiagnosed and left untreated. This becomes a major cause of depression in diabetes, leading to a setback in personal lives and affecting blood sugar control as well.
