From Los Angeles, California, USA:

First off, I'm male, 15 years old, diagnosed with type 1 six weeks ago. How will masturbation affect my blood sugar?


Masturbation doesn't do much of anything to blood sugars. Almost everybody does it and almost nobody talks about it. There might be a short adrenalin surge/release at the point of orgasm and this could, theoretically, temporarily raise the blood glucose levels but not long enough to worry about it.
