This ISSM Webinar will be about Diabetes and Sexuality.
Medical comorbidities often have a significant impact on sexuality either directly or indirectly secondary to medical interventions. In addition to the physical aspects, chronic illness can also lead to significant psychological burdens which may affect both patients and partners. Diabetes is one such condition which impacts several areas of sexuality for both men and women and may occur at younger ages. The objective of the current webinar is to provide both clinicians and patients updated knowledge on diabetes and its role in various sexual dysfunctions.
