Diabetes is one of the most common chronic health conditions in the United States, affecting tens of millions of Americans. While people are generally aware of some of the long-term health effects of the disease, a lesser-known issue for those who have diabetes is sexual dysfunction. Preventing diabetes or managing it if you already have it can help prevent complications, including sexual dysfunction. So, Las Vegas, NV area residents who have the disease or are at a higher risk should consult with double board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh and the HEALOR Primary Care team.
What is diabetes?
In a person with diabetes, their body fails to produce sufficient amounts of the hormone insulin or uses the insulin it does produce inefficiently. Without effective insulin production, the glucose our bodies create from the food we eat remains in the blood. Diabetes consists of two main types, Type 1 and Type 2, but over time, both types can cause organ damage that results in death. For Las Vegas, NV residents, Dr. Singh and the team at HEALOR Primary Care will use blood tests to diagnose diabetes.
