Women With Diabetes Can’t Get No Satisfaction

“I’ll be OK if my sugar doesn’t drop too low”

Well, that’s not entirely accurate.

MedPageToday reported on a study of sexual satisfaction in women.

“While many diabetic women are interested and engaged in sexual activity, diabetes is associated with a markedly decreased sexual quality of life in women,” they wrote.

Complications of diabetes — including heart disease, stroke, renal dysfunction, and peripheral neuropathy — were associated with diminished sexual function among diabetic women, suggesting that “prevention of diabetic complications may be helpful in preventing sexual dysfunction,” in these patients, the researchers wrote.
