Diabetes and erectile dysfunction

Diabetes Health Matters with Dr Joan St John

In this episode

One out of two men living with diabetes will experience erectile dysfunction. “There’s a lot of things that people want to know but are embarrassed to ask and they don’t know where to find the answers, so they go on the internet and get fleeced for lots and lots of money” regrets Professor Frank Chinegwundoh MBE.

In this episode Dr Joan St John is joined by Professor Frank Chinegwundoh MBE, his interests focus on urological oncology, erectile dysfunction, incontinence, sexual dysfunction. He was awarded an MBE in 2013 for his work and dedication to urology and the NHS, being one of the only urologists to be awarded this. In this episode he will discuss the links between erectile dysfunction and diabetes, the different types of treatment for erectile dysfunction and the prevalence of erectile dysfunction.
