The number of diabetes cases amongst the population of Qatar has soared in recent years, and according to one Urologist the situation will worsen unless radical preventative measures are not applied.
Dr. Debashish Sengupta indicated the importance of highlighting diabetes awareness, both amongst the general population and amongst diabetics. Amongst other complications caused by reduced blood circulation and a narrowing of the blood vessels is erectile dysfunction, or ED.
Dr. Sengupta said: “Erectile dysfunction is usually seen in men above the age of 40 years. However, diabetes accelerates the aging process thus leading to ED at an earlier stage, sometimes up to 10 years earlier than in the general population.”
He concluded: “The percentage of Qatar’s population suffering from diabetes is on the rise and because diabetic men are more prone to suffer from ED, it is highly important to treat both, diabetes and impotence, at an early stage.”
