Diabetic men are prone to develop sexual problems, the most common being erectile failure. In the past this diabetic impotence has been regarded as a discrete clinical entity, providing one of the best examples of a physically-induced failure of erection. It now appears likely that the clinical picture and aetiology are more involved than had been suspected, there being a complex interaction between physical and psychological influences. Assessment and treatment need to take account of this interaction by concentrating not only on the form of the sexual disturbance but also on its context.
