Patient Comments: Sex, Urinary, and Bladder Problems of Diabetes - Men

As a man with diabetes, please discuss any sexual, urinary, or bladder problems you have experienced.

Comment from: Frank K., Male (Patient) Published: June 02

I sometimes get up in the morning with wet underwear and I had no sensation during the night that I was wetting myself. The bed is not wet but I am wet. I am 79 years old and a diabetic with glucose readings in the morning around 130 to 140.
