Although diabetes and erectile dysfunction (ED) are two separate conditions, research has shown that up to 75% of men suffering from diabetes experience some degree of ED. Erectile dysfunction is especially common in patients with type 2 diabetes. It can stem from damage to nerves and blood vessels caused by poor long-term blood sugar control, which damages nerves and blood vessels.

Erectile dysfunction can also be linked to other conditions common in men with diabetes, such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Erectile dysfunction might occur earlier in men with diabetes than in men without the disease. Difficulty maintaining an erection might even precede the diabetes diagnosis.

The Vacurect works by creating a vacuum inside a tube, which draws blood into the penis, that fills and expand the penis. Herewith an erection can be achieved sufficient for intercourse. The increased arterial inflow with oxygen then reverses the hypoxic status, prevents apotosis and fibrosis. Therefor the Vacurect can preserves erectile function and preserves penile tissue in patients with diabetes.
