Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements supports research shows how the occurrence of diabetes mellitus may also affect a woman’s sexual function.
According to a recent medical report published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, the occurrence of diabetes mellitus may also affect a woman’s sexual function, especially those at their middle to older adult years. For years, most of the reports on the relationship between sexual function and elevated blood sugar focused on males in reports on sexual dysfunction caused by other medical conditions, such as prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. The authors of the medical report were thus prompted to examine whether such issues regarding sexual function occurred among women.
The research study was conducted among approximately 2,270 women with an average age of 55 years old (age range: 40–80 years old). The study participants were further groups according to the occurrence of diabetes mellitus, as well as on the usage of insulin injections for the control of blood sugar. Three study groups were thus created, those without diabetes mellitus, those with diabetes mellitus and taking insulin, and those with diabetes mellitus and not taking insulin. The study participants were then given questionnaires that asked information about their sexual activity.
The results of the study showed that the women with diabetes mellitus who were taking regular insulin shots showed a higher number of complaints regarding their sexual activity, as compared to those women with diabetes mellitus and not taking insulin shots or non-diabetic women. The complaints regarding poor sexual function included a difficulty in lubrication during sex, and a lower chance of having an orgasm. These reports may thus affect the quality of the women’s sexual activity, which may also influence their relationship with their partners.
The study also showed that aside from the women with diabetes mellitus are also more likely to develop further complications such as heart disease and renal dysfunction. These additional medical conditions may also influence a woman’s capacity to enjoy sex, aside from the common complaints that were caused by their elevated blood sugar.
CEO of Bel Marra Health Jim Chiang says, “This recent medical report shows an additional factor that needs to be addressed by both physicians and patients with diabetes mellitus. It may still be possible to improve the quality of sexual activity amid diabetes mellitus, possibly through the control of the disease to prevent further deterioration of the body.”
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione also chimed in saying, “It is also important to follow a healthy and nutritious food regimen that will maintain the basic physiologic functions of the body, thus possibly increasing the chances to live longer.”
