Today on Dr Oz Mike And Crystal joined Dr. Oz, this couple learns how weight impacts sex drive and the ability to have sex, they are just one of many couples too heavy to have sex. Their weight makes it physically impossible to have an sexual intimate relationship.
Mike and Crystal have been married for 4 years and because both of them are morbidly obese they have never been able to consummate their marriage. Mike has had problems with erectile dysfunction since the mid eighty's which Crystal knew about, but it didn't matter to her because she loved Mike regardless. She went to say that somewhere in the back of her mind she thought that she could change things for Mike, but that didn't happen.
Mike and crystal built and intimate relationship through food, which Dr Harry Fisch says is a very common situation. Food replaced the intimacy because they were both too heavy to have sex.
They would show each other their love for one another by going out to a beautiful dinner, or Crystal would make foods for Mike as her way of showing her intimacy.
Dr. Miram Baker spoke with Mike And Crystal and said that was exactly how an intimate relationship can be built through food.
For Mike and Crystal to even try and snuggle, it was too uncomfortable for intimacy. Mike explained that his erectile dysfunction gets him very frustrated, and he started crying and then Crystal would cry.
Dr Oz Medical Emergency On Stage
Dr Oz took Mike and Crystal to the truth tube because Dr Oz says the ability to have sex is an indicator of overall health.
He got Mike on the Truth Tube and did his numbers and that was as far as he got, he didn't even do Crystal's numbers, he was totally shocked with Mike's Blood Pressure.
Mikes Weight was 307 Pounds
Triglycerides were 259
Testosterone Levels were 246(testosterone levels should be any where from 280 - 800 preferably closer to 800 the better)
Glucose 197 - They should be no more than 100
Mikes Blood Pressure was 280 over 100
Dr Oz asked him if he was ok, and told him he wanted him to sit down, asked him if he had a headache or anything. Mike's blood pressure is normally 150 over 85, and he takes medications for it.
Dr Oz says he didn't think he should be going home and Dr Harry Fisch is going to get him on the right medications. Dr oz says there are a couple things about erectile dysfunction that Mike needs to know about, but they are so small compared to the bigger issue, which is Mike is about to have a stroke from his blood pressure.
Dr Oz asked Dr Fisch to treat might aggressively for his blood pressure, and get him into a program to help him. Dr oz told Mike his erectile dysfunction is going to save his life.
Mike started crying and said he didn't realize it was that bad, and Dr oz said he isn't going to let him fail.
