When erection is lost : Men’s expreiences of erectile dysfunction caused by diabetes mellitus type 2. A literature review. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Det är känt att erektil dysfunktion, eller impotens, orsakas av förstorad prostata, depression och diabetes. Den typ av erektil dysfunktion som orsakas av diabetes har en mer komplicerad utveckling än övriga orsaker.Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt var att belysa sexuellt aktiva mäns erfarenheter av erektil dysfunktion till följd av diabetes mellitus typ 2.

Metod: Metoden som valdes var en litteraturöversikt med kvalitativa och kvantitativa artiklar. Datamaterialet bestod av tio kvantitativa och två kvalitativa artiklar.

Resultat: Två kategorier identifierades såsom Livet påverkas samt Förståelse för situationen med underkategorier.

Konklusion: Det råder kunskapsbrist i fråga om varför män drabbas av erektil dysfunktion. Många män anser inte att det finns någon fungerande behandling. Om kontroll av den erektila funktionen ingick i årskontrollen av diabetes tillsammans med en välgrundad information samt adekvat behandling skulle de drabbade männen och deras partner få bättre insikt och medvetande om problemet. Detta skulle leda till mindre oro, bättre sexuell och mental hälsa samt en bättre relation.

Abstract [en]

Background: It is commonly known that erectile dysfunction, popularly known as impotence, is caused by several factors including enlarged prostate, depression and diabetes. The erectile dysfunction caused by diabetes has a more difficult progress than other causes.Aim: The aim of this study was to illustrate sexually active men’s experiences of erectile dysfunction caused by diabetes mellitus type 2.

Method: The chosen method was a literature review based of qualitative and quantitative articles. Ten quantitative and two qualitative articles were analysed.

Results: Two categories were identified, Affects on life and Understanding the situation with subcategories.

Conclusions: There is lack of knowledge about why men suffer from erectile dysfunction. Several of the men do not believe there is a treatment for their problem. If erection status was a part of the annual diabetes check-ups as well as valid information and adequate treatment the men and their partner would have better knowledge and awareness about the condition. This would also result in less anxiety, better sexual and mental health and a better relation.
