Erectile dysfunction: Attendance and management at an East London clinic

Martin Steggall, Sandra Gann, Francis I Chinegwundoh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although erectile dysfunction (ED) is common in men with diabetes, and effective treatments are available, those affected often delay seeking advice or treatment. This retrospective review of men attending a nurse-led ED clinic in East London sought to determine the length of the delay and possible reasons for it. One barrier to effective management is at-risk men not being asked about sexual function at other opportunities. Strategies for overcoming this barrier, and for optimising phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitor treatment while staying within government guidelines, are proposed.
