Premature Ejaculation Linked to Hypoglycemic Variability in Type 1 Diabetes


Higher glycemic variability is associated with premature ejaculation (PE) in young males with type 1 diabetes (T1DM)

Data were collected from 100 male patients with type 1 diabetes (age, <40 years) and 51 age-matched controls without diabetes.

The researchers noted no significant difference in PE prevalence between the groups: Premature Ejaculation was observed in 24 percent of patients with diabetes and in 23.5 percent of controls. Hemoglobin A1c was significantly associated with the Premature Ejaculation. The Premature Ejaculation correlated with low blood glucose indices but not with the standard deviation of blood glucose, mean amplitude of glycemic excursions, or low blood glucose indices in the subgroup assessed for glucose variability.

In diabetic patients with PE, a higher glycemic variability in the hypoglycemic domain is significantly associated with the PEDT score.
