Diabetes patients find themselves asking lots of questions such as how to lower the blood sugar levels, how to lose weight and what to eat. Have you also wondered about how diabetes could affect your sex life? According to medical experts, high blood sugar levels can trigger damages to your blood vessels and nerves and this in turn can obstruct the normal flow of blood to the genitalia and thus, inhibit their proper functioning.
