Abstract

Objectives: To document the prevalence of self-reported sexual dysfunctions (SDs) in diabetic type 2 (DM2) men attending the andrology clinic in the Alexandria University hospital. Methods: A retrospective analysis of clinical case records of 276 consecutive DM2 and 100 consecutive non-diabetic (controls) men who reported SDs directly to the andrology clinic was done. Results: The majority of the patients and controls had light manual occupation, low education level and no history of smoking. No patient reported history of alcohol intake. Erectile dysfunction (ED) was frequent in the DM2 patients and the only complaint in 54.7%. The remaining patients had more than one (compound) complaint. ED (42.7%), premature ejaculation (22.1%) and low libido (11.7%) were the most frequent SDs in these compound complaints. They often joined together in the patients. Less frequently reported SDs were anejaculation (7.2%), penile curvature (4.4%), small-sized penis (2.5%) and penile plaques (0.7%). Penile pain and delayed and painful ejaculations were the rarest reported SDs. Conclusion: DM2 men consulting the andrology clinic may present with several different sexual complaints although ED is the most frequent among these. All diabetic men, therefore, should be asked carefully about the probable existence of any variety of SDs during their medical evaluation.
