LOPEZ M, Cruz M; HEREDIA V, M. Elvira; GONZALEZ H, Ricardo  y  ROSALES P, Eusebio. Erectile dysfunction among diabetic patients. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.12, pp.1555-1559. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872013001200009.

Background: Diabetic microangiopathy is one of the main causes of erectile dysfunction. Aim: To study the prevalence of erectile dysfunction among diabetic patients. Material and Methods: The "international index of erectile function" survey was applied to 120 diabetic men aged 21 to 50years. Demographic data, evolution time of diabetes, a glycosilated hemoglobin measured in the last three months, weight, height and treatment received were also recorded. Results: Fifty five percent of patients had erectile dysfunction. Patients with an inadequate metabolic control had a significantly higher risk of having this condition (odds ratio 5.5; 95% confidence intervals 2.3-81). Conclusions: Erectile dysfunction is common among diabetic patients and closely associated with an inadequate metabolic control.
