Diabetes and Men:preventdiabetes.com:"5060 percent of men with diabetes over age 50 are estimated to be affected by impotence, a problem suffered by approximately 10 percent of men in the general population Amputation rates are 1.4 to 2.7 times higher in men than women (Improved prevention and treatment of foot ulcers, and education about proper foot care can prevent up to 85 percent of these lower-extremity amputations.)"

Diabetes-related beliefs and attitudes in men:diabetic-lifestyle:"Men had a higher total diabetes self-efficacy score then women, that is they felt more confident about managing their diabetes than women. They were less likely to feel that their health outcomes were a result of fate or some external force. Men reported that they were in control of their disease and had control of any medical complications, long or short term. Men reported fewer episodes of hyperglycemia and lower levels of self-reported depression and anxiety. Spousal reports tended to confirm these findings, that is that men felt more confident and competent in their own ability to manage diabetes."

Grant to help cut diabetes among black men:Melissa Thrasher:"Twice as many African-American men in Michigan have diabetes as white men, so the state has awarded a $320,000 grant to Detroit's Henry Ford Health System for new programs to combat the problem. There are 23 black men per 100,000 in Michigan with diabetes, compared to 14 whites per 100,000, said Dr. Kimberlydawn Wisdom, a researcher for the Henry Ford Health System. The numbers are higher for African-American men from 40-44, she said, and Detroit has the largest proportion of black men with diabetes in the state. Diabetes increases the risk of amputations, blindness and kidney disease. Wisdom said the $320,000 in state funding will enhance health outreach programs for men. Henry Ford's Center for Medical Treatment Effectiveness programs in Diverse Populations hopes to screen and identify black men with diabetes early and offer classes to teach them skills to take care of themselves, including better nutrition and exercise."

Smoking and the risk of diabetes in elderly Finnish Men:diabetes care:"Association between smoking and glucose intolerance was estimated separately for 420 participants and 243 nonparticipants in 1989. Multiple logistic regression analyses show that odds ratios of glucose intolerance in 1984 for current smokers in 1984 were 0.36 (0.19-0.70) and 1.20 (0.52-2.78), respectively, in the participants and the nonparticipants in 1989. Among the nonparticipants in 1989, the odds ratio for current smokers in 1969 was 2.23 (1.00-4.96). A reduced risk of glucose intolerance in 1989 associated with smoking in the participants in 1989 was found to be significant from the beginning of the follow-up. The participants in 1989 were generally healthier and had a longer life expectancy than the nonparticipants in 1989."

A drink or 2 a day cuts men's diabetes risk:Diabetes care:"Men who unwind after work with a mug of beer or a glass of wine may be less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than their teetotaling peers, results of a new study suggest. Researchers found that men who consumed 15 to 29 grams (g) of alcohol daily had a 36% lower risk of diabetes over 12 years, compared with men who did not drink and with men who were lighter drinkers. Findings were similar when it came to beer, white wine or liquor.Heavy drinkers, or those who consumed more than 50 g of alcohol daily, were 39% less likely to develop diabetes, although there were few men in the study who consumed this much alcohol, the researchers note."
http://www.lifescan.com/care/news/dn101201-1.html

western diet linked to type 2 diabetes in men:Health info:"A diet heavy in processed meat, red meat, high-fat dairy products and sweets may substantially increase a man's odds of developing type 2 diabetes, according to the results of a large US study. On the other hand, diets rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, fish and poultry may offer some protection against the disease, researchers report in Tuesday's issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which the body can no longer properly use insulin, a pancreatic hormone that helps shuttle the glucose (sugar) in food from the blood and into cells to be used as energy. The condition is closely related to obesity."
http://healthinfo.health-first.org/HealthNews/reuters/NewsStory020420029.htm

Men Going for the Grains May Cut Diabetes Risk:Yahoo daily news:"According to a study in the August issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition ( news - web sites), whole-grain products--such as brown rice, oats, corn and barley--were protective against diabetes. Men who ate the most whole-grain products were less likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes than men who consumed mostly refined grains--like those found in cookies, doughnuts, pasta or white rice, the study results show."
http://dailynews.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&cid=594&ncid=594&e=8&u=/nm/20020823/hl_nm/grains_health_dc_1

Eating processed meats increases diabetes risk in men:spcnetwork.com:"Eating a diet high in processed meats such as hot dogs, bacon, salami or sausage may substantially increase a man's risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to the results of a large US study. The good news is that diets rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, fish and poultry may offer some protection against the disease, researchers report in March the issue of Diabetes Care."
http://www.spcnetwork.com/mii/2002/020305.htm

Diabetic Men Who Exercise Have Lower Risk Of Death:Podiatry channel:"Men with type 2 diabetes who are active and physically fit have a lower overall risk of dying than diabetic men who lead a sedentary lifestyle, researchers report. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the illness, and usually develops in adulthood -- although it appears to be on the rise in children. Obesity can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Taking part in moderate exercise -- such as walking -- 30 minutes a day on most days of the week would "probably be sufficient to develop or maintain the fitness level that was associated with lower mortality rates in our study," according to the report in the April 18th issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine"
http://www.podiatrychannel.com/PodiatryWorld/death.shtml

Duration of type 2 diabetes tied to impotence risk:National Library of Medicine:"Impotence is known to be a common problem among diabetic men, and new research suggests that the longer a man has had type 2 diabetes, the greater his chances of erectile dysfunction. The study of men aged 53 to 90 found that those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes were more likely to have erectile dysfunction (ED) than non-diabetic men. Among those with type 2 diabetes, ED risk grew in tandem with the duration of the diabetes. Men who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes within the past 10 years showed no particular risk of ED. But for men who had been diagnosed more than 20 years before, the risk of ED was 70% greater than that of non-diabetic men their age. The researchers, led by Dr. Constance G. Bacon of Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, based their findings on data from more than 30,000 men in a long-running US study. The results are published in the August issue of the journal Diabetes Care."
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_9199.html

Vardenafil improves erectile function in men with diabetes:The Pharmaceutical Journal:"VARDENAFIL, a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, improves erectile dysfunction in men with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, according to data from a phase III study. Data were presented last month at the 61st Annual American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions."
