Studies reveal that the risk factors for erectile function (ED) in the diabetic population are largely modifiable including poor glycemic control, testosterone deficiency, peripheral arterial disease, and autonomic neuropathy, while a longer duration of DM was noted as an important non-modifiable risk factor. Therefore, periodic assessment of ED should form part of routine diabetes care, focusing attention on the modifiable risk factors as this may go a long way in preventing ED, delaying its progression, or reversing established ED in persons with type 2 diabetes.
