Sexual Dysfunction in Male Diabetics Strong Predictor of Heart Attacks!

Here is some interesting information concerning the link between
sexual dysfunction, diabetes, and heart health. The article is
written by Dr. Jerry Kennard from The HealthCentral Network.


Sexual dysfunction in men with diabetes may signal an increased
risk of serious heart problems according to research published in
the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Dr. Peter Chun-Yip Tong, of the Chinese University of Hong Kong,
studied the problem in more than 2,000 diabetic men in their
mid-50s, with no previous history of heart disease for up to
seven years. Tong discovered that those with sexual dysfunction
were almost twice as likely to suffer a heart attack, die from
heart disease, develop chest pain associated with clogged arteries,
or need surgical interventions along the lines of a bypass. Men
with type 2 diabetes who also had a history of heart disease have
an even higher risk of serious heart problems.

Dr. Robert Kloner, a professor of medicine at the Keck School of
Medicine at the University of Southern California said, “what is
new here is that sexual dysfunction remained a significant risk
factor for developing heart disease after controlling for other
cardiovascular factors.” Kloner also said, “men should know that
sexual dysfunction is a true harbinger of atherosclerotic coronary
heart disease.”

The reason why sexual dysfunction is a good predictor of heart
disease or stroke is that these conditions share a problem of
arteries failing to expand fully. Because arteries in the penis
are smaller than those in the heart, sexual dysfunction may act
as an early warning sign of impending heart problems.

In a very similar experiment in Hong Kong, Dr. Carmine Gazzaruso
investigated 291 Italian men in their mid-50s. Dr. Gazzaruso also
independently established that those with sexual dysfunction were
more than twice as likely to suffer from heart attacks, heart
disease or strokes.

Men have a poor track record when it comes to seeking help and
support for medical conditions. Suffering from sexual dysfunction
in silence because of embarrassment or other misguided motives
may simply be avoiding clear signs of impending heart problems.
