There is a group for Mens Sexual issues, You must request membership to view this group.

in that group their are very few members plus their are old posts which are around 2 years old . so question is , is it of any benifit .

I think it's great that we have a group for these issues. I also want to observe that high blood sugars can cause problems with desire, arousal and ability to "perform". You stated your A1C is "under 8" but that is still significantly high.

so please kindly help. tell me the remedy.

How old are you...please share?

You do not have to be a diabetic to suffer from these issues and you need to see a Medical doctor and see if there is a physacal issue, like a cardiovascular problem, many older men have issues but I can tell you that most of the problems are in our head ( libido sexual drive).....I asked for some help from a doctor that has taken care of me for most of my adult life and he said I can give you some pills but they will not help because your problem is libido, I tried the pills and they where no help, he was right because my wife cannot deliver what I'm looking for, there is much more to life than sex and the best solution for me was to focus on the rest of my wonderful life with my wife and family.

Ok, my apologies for going off track and maybe getting too personal. My explanation is that I teach a Human Sexuality course! Have you spoken to your wife, John about "she cannot deliver what I'm looking for"?

Rajesh - get your A1c down to 6.5 preferably 6.0 and try to exercise more and sleep well. There maybe some supplements such as frolic acid that may help. If you are on heart medications that's bad news for your sex drive.

Zoe is correct. Better control of your diabetes and reducing that A1C a couple of points or so will help a great deal, probably more than anything else you can do.

thanks Spock i just working on it . Wil bring it under control soon.

I do think that if you join the group that Stemwinder has suggested you will find better answers to your questions. The members of that group will already have discussed many of these issues and they will also talk more candidly to you about it. Why don't you join the group and see.

I feel obligated to remark that I find it interesting that the men are going "take it to the men's group" but the women are answering the question(s)? Obviously it's a small sample size but well, you know...

That group must be the equivalent to the Men's Locker room. Not sure, though, since you can't even read it without joining first. That said, I've found the groups here to be of very limited value because of the lack of viewer and contributor eyes.
