In last month’s edition of Diabetes Bites we asked whether diabetes has ever gotten in the way of your sexual relationship with your partner.
There were 129 responses.
A. Diabetes has never interfered with my sex life: 14% B. Low blood sugar sometimes gets in the way: 31% C. My diabetes equipment sometimes gets in the way: 10% D. Both B and C: 45%
Bottom line: Diabetes interferes with the sex life of the vast majority of people with diabetes. But it doesn’t have to! Have an open discussion with your physician or diabetes educator. There are practical solutions for just about any challenge.
THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION:
This month, tell us which Thanksgiving delicacy is most worth it even if it causes a stubborn high blood sugar:
A. Stuffing B. Sweet/mashed potatoes C. Cranberry sauce D. Pie E. Bread/rolls
