Screening men with erectile dysfunction may detect diabetes

July 30, 2015

Men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to have undiagnosed diabetes compared with those without erectile dysfunction, according to recent study findings published in Annals of Family Medicine.

“Erectile dysfunction can act as an important tool to trigger both patients and physicians to screen for diabetes,” the researchers wrote. “Although we observed significant associations between undiagnosed diabetes and more traditional cardiovascular risk factors, erectile dysfunction is unique because of its common symptomatology and available treatment options. As such, it can act as a useful incentive for men to access the health care system and be readily screened.”
