Viagra May benefit Heart health And Help Managing Type 2 Diabetes In Men

Previous study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism suggested that sildenafil a medication used to treat erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension, active ingredient in Viagra, may improve insulin sensitivity and prevent type 2 diabetes without heart and kidney disease risk.

Dr. Nancy J. Brown, author of the study from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tenn., believes additional strategies, like sildenafil, are necessary to help slow the progression from prediabetes to diabetes.

New study finds that the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra may lower the risk of heart attack, as well as increase the likelihood of surviving one. Study co-author Prof. Andrew Trafford, from the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom and colleagues published their findings in the journal Heart.

For this study, the team set out to assess how PDE5 inhibitors affect the risk of heart attack incidence and mortality among men with both erectile dysfunction and type 2 diabetes.

Prof. Trafford and colleagues say their findings support previous research hailing the heart health benefits of Viagra and they call for “urgent investigation” into how PDE5 inhibitors might benefit patients with type 2 diabetes.

Existing drug therapies to prevent Type 2 diabetes can have negative effects on the heart or be of limited use in patients with kidney disease, strategies to prevent diabetes without adversely affecting the risk of kidney and heart disease could have a large impact on public health.
