In 5301 hypertensive patients, we found that a beta-blocker (atenolol) was the most commonly prescribed drug and was significantly more often prescribed for young male hypertensives (< 45 years). Subjects were assessed by PHC physicians using a sexual dysfunction semistructured questionnaire and a questionnaire designed for medical history and sociodemographic data. Diabetic women had more dysfunction of desire, arousal, lubrication, and orgasm than nondiabetic women. Women with FSD reported loss of libido (57%); problems with orgasm (51%), lubrication (47%), and arousal (38%); and pain (21%). In women, diabetes is reported to slightly increase he risk of decreased sexual arousal, inadequate lubrication and pain on sexual intercourse, while erectile dysfunction is the most common presentation of sexual dysfunction in men. Hyperglycemia, which is a main determinant of vascular and microvascular diabetic complications, may participate in the pathogenetic mechanisms of sexual dysfunction in diabetes. Multivariate logistic regression analysis identified the following risk factors for erectile dysfunction in patients with T2DM and/or MetS: age, blood pressure and duration of diabetes.
At stepwise regression, SDN score (negatively) and Doppler E wave peak velocity (positively) predicted FSFI score (r = 507, P < 0.001). The associations remained significant after adjusting for numerous predictors of sexual dysfunction. for 58% and 60% towards SEP2 and SEP3 questionnaire, respectively. A study from the Netherlands stated that the prevalence of erectile dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes was about 41.3% . Screening of sexual dysfunction should become a part of routine care in the management of T2DM patients. Furthermore, it would be important to know at what stage of the menstrual cycle the questionnaires were filled out. Disclaimer This information has been developed and reviewed for Bupa by health professionals. Among these diabetic subjects, a positive correlation existed between SD, premature ejaculation, non-sensuality and dissatisfaction with duration of diabetes. The sexual sphere motivation leads to the improvement of glucoregulation in DM patients.
