Premature Ejaculation and Type 1 Diabetes

Feb 27, 2015

They recruited 100 men with type 1 diabetes to participate in the study. An additional 51 men without diabetes were also included for comparison purposes.

To assess the men’s ejaculatory function, the researchers used a tool called the premature ejaculation diagnostic tool (PEDT). Men with high PEDT scores are classified as having PE. The scientists also asked the men to estimate their intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT), the duration between penetration and ejaculation.

They found that 24% of the diabetic men and 23.5% of the nondiabetic men had PE. Because these rates were similar, they concluded that type 1 diabetes is not a risk factor for PE. In other words, men with type 1 diabetes are not more likely to develop PE than men without type 1 diabetes.

The researchers also studied blood glucose levels for thirty of the diabetic men (20 with PE and 10 without PE). They found that higher glycemic variability - more fluctuation with blood glucose levels – was associated with PEDT scores.
