Answer to your Health Question


I am a lady 49 years I want to have a baby .

My husband is diabetic and take medicine.

Is there any chance to have a baby? I have kids



Dear Ema,

Nobody really has a great answer to your question.

It is more difficult to conceive with a diabetic husband.

Diabetes in the father does not affect the developing baby during pregnancy. However, depending on the type of diabetes the father has, the baby might have a greater chance of developing diabetes later in life.

The actual risks for a diabetic father to have a child with type 1 diabetes are in the 2 to 6% range in most research studies.

If you or your husband have type 2 diabetes, your child has a higher risk of getting diabetes when he/she is an adult.

Being a diabetic can affect a man's reproductive system.

Retrograde ejaculation is very common in diabetics.

Retrograde ejaculation refers to the entry of semen into the bladder instead of going out through the urethra during ejaculation.

Around 40% of sufferers from retrograde ejaculation have found that use of pseudoephedrine (brands names include Sudafed) noticeably improves the quantity of semen that is ejaculated.

Diabetes damages DNA in men's sperm and may affect fertility.

Around 80% of people with type 1 diabetes have no family history.

According to American Diabetes Association if both parents have type 1 diabetes, the risk of diabetic child is not known but is expected to be somewhat higher than 4%.
