Sexual dysfunction among Jordanian men with diabetes.
Saudi Med J. 2006 Mar; 27(3):351-6.SM

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To estimate the prevalence and severity of erectile dysfunction (ED) and its correlations among Jordanian men with diabetes.

METHODS

We conducted this study at the National Center for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Genetics, Amman, Jordan, between January and August 2004. The study included 988 married diabetic men. Patients were interviewed by one of our medical staff based on a health care questionnaire and an Arabic translation of the 15-item International Index of Erectile Function. Scores of the questions in each of the 5 sexual function domains were summed up. Dysfunction was categorized as absent, mild, moderate or severe.

RESULTS

The overall prevalence of ED was 62%; and we found that 30.3% had severe ED. The prevalence increased with age from 26.5% (13 out of 49) of patients <40 years of age to 91% (87 out of 96) in the age group > or = 70 years. Severity of ED increased with age as well. Multivariate logistic regression analysis identified age, glycemic control, hypertension, coronary artery disease, retinopathy and neuropathy as independent risk factors of ED. Among patients with ED, 7% reported having treatment for ED.

CONCLUSION

Prevalence of ED among Jordanian diabetic patients is high. It increases with age and poor glycemic control. Other independent risk factors include: hypertension, coronary artery disease, retinopathy and neuropathy.
