Abstract
The main objective of this study was to investigate the prevalence of sexual disorders in diabetics, owing to diabetes constitutes a growing public health problem, leading to a variety of dysfunctions such as cardiovascular, psychological, and sexual dysfunctions, that is why Diabetes is a well-known cause of SD, with prevalence rates approaching 50% in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, but the determinants of SD in diabetic men include glycemic control and most of the principal cardiovascular risk factors, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, overweight and obesity, metabolic syndrome, smoking, and sedentary lifestyles. Moreover, sexual disorders considered as important predictors of the development of major complaints in diabetic patients, on the other hand, the debate as to whether diabetes link with sexual dysfunction or not, is an issue of controversy, moreover, diabetic women suffer from the same neurovascular complications that contribute to the pathogenesis of SD in men, however, results of sexual functioning of diabetic women are less conclusive. Conclusion: extending beyond the specific effects on sexual dysfunction in men and women with diabetes, the adoption of these measures promotes a healthier life and increased well-being, which in turn, may help to reduce the burden of sexual dysfunction.
