When we talk about metabolic health, people often associate it with maintaining a healthy weight and having good energy levels.
But did you know our metabolic health affects our sexual function and fertility, too?
Our hormones hang in a delicate balance, and when blood sugar goes on a wild ride so does everything else. That means not only are we at risk of weight gain, mood swings, and energy crashes, but it increases the chances of erectile dysfunction, infertility, difficulty finding sexual pleasure, and so much more.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, I sit down with my friend Dr. Casey Means to talk about the three main ways metabolic health can impact sexual function.
Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Cofounder of the metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a lecturer at Stanford University.
