Put your health first and manage your diabetes

Put your health first and manage your diabetes

Men can have different issues related to diabetes than women, including problems with their sexual health. Men with diabetes have a greater chance of erectile dysfunction or impotence (which is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex) than men who do not have diabetes. Having diabetes puts men at risk for other health issues too:
Stroke and heart problems
Eye problems that can make it hard to see or make you go blind
Kidney problems that cause your kidneys to stop working
Teeth and gum problems
Pain, tingling, or numbness in your hands and feet
You can delay or prevent these complications by quitting smoking if you smoke, reaching and staying at a healthy weight, being physically active, and following your doctor's recommendations. Ask your doctor if there is a diabetes education program that can help you manage your diabetes.
The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has information and resources to help you make healthy changes and manage your diabetes. Start with the 4 Steps to Manage Your Diabetes for Life booklet to learn ways to improve your health.
