Abstract

BACKGROUND. Erecticle dysfunctions are one of the last diabetes complication. The mechanism of this problem is very composite. It mostly occurs as a result of accumulation of many factors. The problem induced us to deepen this matter and to gain broader knowledge about that. Erectile dysfunction is one of the late complications of diabetes, and the mechanism of these disorders is very complex. Frequently they result from the cumulation of many factors. This is a problem that has prompted us to explore this subject and a wider understanding of the problem.
MATERIAL AND METHODS. In the Department of Balneology and Physical Medicine there were conducted surveys on men’s intimate life. A retrospective anonymous questionnaire consisted of interviews and five questions on the quantity and quality of the intimate sphere. The studies lasted from July 2006 to August 2009. We examined a total of 205 patients, including 115 men with diabetes and 90 patients without disturbances of bicarbonate.
RESULTS
1. 5.2% of diabetic patients estimate it at very high level the potential to achieve an erection (14.4% in the control group).
2. Only 22.7% of patients with diabetes had nearly always erection (48.9% in the control group).
3. As many as 10.4% of diabetic patients almost never maintained an erection during sexual intercourse.
4. Satisfaction with intimate life only occurs in 43.5% of patients (71.1% in the control group). (Diabet. Prakt. 2010; 11, 6: 216–220)
