A Genetic Link Between Type 2 Diabetes And Erectile Dysfunction

Type 2 Diabetes

We already know that men with type 2 diabetes are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction.

The reason for this was thought to be unhealthy lifestyle factors. Meaning, an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, etc. is likely to cause both type 2 diabetes and erectile dysfunction.

This is still the case.

However, researchers have now found that men who are genetically predisposed for type 2 diabetes are also more likely to have erectile dysfunction, than those without this risk factor.

The study included more than 220,000 men, of whom about 6,000 had erectile dysfunction.

The reason for this link may be because type 2 diabetes can cause nerve damage and problems with blood vessels. This again is likely to restrict bloodflow and can cause ED.
