[Diabetes and erectile dysfunction in Morocco: epidemiological study among outpatients]
AbstractWe studied the relationship between erectile dysfunction [ED] and diabetes among 189 men [> 40 years] attending primary health care centres in Morocco. Of the 89 diabetic men, 82% had ED while only 17% of the 100 non-diabetic men had ED. The frequency of ED among diabetic men increased with age, from 60% in those aged 40-49 years to 94.95% in those aged >/= 60 years [from 6.3% to 35.4% in men without diabetes for similar ages]. ED was reported by 93.3% of diabetic men who had had diabetes for > 15 years.
