diabetes and ed philadelphia pa

Recent studies have shown a link between diabetes and erectile dysfunction (ED) as a result of nerve and blood vessel damage caused by poorly controlled blood sugars. Men with diabetes are found to be 2-3 times more likely to suffer from ED, especially if their diabetes is severe or poorly managed.

At Progressive Men’s Health in Philadelphia, Dr. Richard Goldfarb and his team offer long term results with revolutionary treatment that can address the physiological damage caused by diabetes and restore your sexual function. Using shockwave therapy to stimulate the body’s natural healing response, our treatment can improve blood supply that has been affected by disease.

Non Surgical, Long Lasting

Typical treatment for ED involves the use of medications that have associated health risks and have to be taken in a timely manner, adding to the stress of managing ED in an intimate relationship.

Dr. Goldfarb will meet with you to discuss your personal concerns, lifestyle, medical history and goals to evaluate your ED and determine appropriate treatment. Low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) is effective for most patients, but our doctors will thoroughly evaluate your overall health to ensure the best possible result. FDA cleared and used widely throughout Europe, shockwave therapy provides results that offer natural function for sexual activity and a renewed confidence in intimacy.

You can improve your overall result with better lifestyle habits and disease management. This can reduce the risk of further damage to blood vessels and nerves that may compromise the longevity of your treatment outcome.
