Hello everyone, First of all, let me say how grateful I am to find this website where people can share their pain and suffering. I have been a masturbator since I was 15 and I am 32 now. However, it started getting really really bad in my late twenties, I would masturbate like 4 times a day to porn. I developed terrible side effects from this habit ranging from leaky gut, inflamed bowels, general anxiety, chronic fatigue and on some occasions Panic attacks. However, I believe that I may have developed insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes from this disgusting habit. I have heard that excessive masturbation over produces cortisol, which stays elevated because of constant production of sperm. When cortisol stays elevated, it may block insulin from doing its job of getting the blood sugar out of the blood. I would REALLY love to know if anyone on here has discovered that chronic masturbation led them to develop high blood sugar ?????? I already have all the known side effects of excessive masturbation But I am starting to really believe that it contributed to the development of my High blood sugar and high blood pressure. Hearing from anyone here with the same experience would be great. How long would it take the body to heal completely after quitting considering that I've done this for years and years ???? Please help.
