Viagra Also Help Men with Diabetes and Benefits Heart Health

It may come as a shock to many that Viagra may be an ingredient in the fight against heart disease and diabetes. Diabetes is on the rise, and 10% of Americans are being diagnosed with Diabetes every year. Type 2 Diabetes is the most common form of the disease there is. A person with Type 2 Diabetes either does not produce enough insulin or their body is unable to utilize the amount of insulin they already have efficiently. Diabetes leads to high blood sugar (glucose levels). High glucose levels are the major contributors to cardiovascular diseases.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is closely linked with heart diseases. Research is being done to determine how to reduce the risk of heart disorders in men with either erectile dysfunction or Type 2 Diabetes. Prof. Andrew Trafford, from the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences at the University of Manchester, discovered in their findings that men using Viagra had a 30% chance of lowering risk of heart disease for about seven years after starting to use the drug. The drug is especially effective in men with a history of cardiovascular diseases.

It was shown by the fact that the men had lower number of heart attacks. And of those who had heart attacks, a larger number of those who used Viagra survived than those who did not use the drug.

The conclusions from this investigation are by no means definitive. However, they do make a statement that calls for more research into the issue. Their medical benefit beyond erectile dysfunction could be significant and could open up other avenues of research into still more suitable solutions. Research along these lines is a portal to even more cures for the lifestyle diseases that are plaguing our civilization.

Clinical trials will soon prove critical in deciding whether Viagra could be made a drug that could be prescribed as a solution for these diseases. Professor Trafford is a professional who is very persistent in this cause.
