Testosterone and Diabetes—An Important Link?
Testosterone and Diabetes—An Important Link?

Until fairly recently, low testosterone in men (I call it "low T") was treated only in patients with severe and obvious T deficiencies, such as men with congenital hormonal conditions that affected their pituitary gland or those who had lost both testicles to trauma, tumors, or infections.  However, as the medical community has learned more about the benefits of T therapy for men with less obvious causes of low T (e.g., improved sexual desire and function, energy, and body composition), there has been concomitant interest in how T relates to other medical conditions, including diabetes.  It turns out that the relationship between low T and diabetes is quite involved, although the final chapter on the ultimate nature of the relationship is still to be written.

New Book Describes the Ins and Outs of Sex and Diabetes
New Book Describes the Ins and Outs of Sex and Diabetes

Among the many possible complications of diabetes is sexual dysfunction. It's not talked about as much as something like neuropathy, so people (especially women) often don't connect their sexual problems to their diabetes. And even if they do, they often can't raise the topic with their healthcare team.

Estimates of the number of diabetic men who experience sexual dysfunction range from 20 percent to a stunning 80 percent.
