Does metformin cause erectile dysfunction

Metformin and Erectile Dysfunction

Metformin (Glucophage®) is a prescription medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. As with any medication, metformin has possible side effects. In clinical studies prior to the approval of metformin, erectile dysfunction was not reported as a metformin side effect. Actually, it is possible that taking metformin may help to improve erectile dysfunction associated with diabetes (known as diabetic impotence). This is because metformin helps to control blood sugar, which may help with diabetic impotence.Erectile dysfunction (also known as ED or impotence) is usually defined as a total inability to achieve an erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. Ultimately, erectile dysfunction is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.

Understanding Clinical Trials

Before medicines are approved, they must go through several clinical studies where thousands of people are given a particular medicine and are then compared to a group of people not given the medicine. In these studies, the side effects are always documented. As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.

Sexual side effects, such as a decrease in sex drive (libido) or erectile dysfunction, were not reported as a common side effect in these studies. These studies did not include information on rare side effects (occurring in less than 1 percent of people). Therefore, it is possible that erectile dysfunction might be a rare metformin side effect.

Interesting article...and yet...

None of his links actually provide factual justification for anything that he is stating.
#1 - link to study on amounts of water retained and lost in chickens through water and air dryed processing facilities. NOTHING about his ridiculous fecal soup statement.
#2 - Eating small amounts of meat as prescribed by most physicians does not cause erectile dysfunction. And the links provided to not provide reliable backup to his comment either. Instead, it is high cholesterol that accounts for some cases of dysfunction. And much of that cholesterol can be accounted for by genetic disposition
