does impotence have to do with diabetes?

Diabetes and Impoten: Diabetics can often exhibit symptoms of impotence particularly when blood sugar is not managed properly. In addition, some medications can also have side effects. Please check with your family doctor to assess the root causes of the problem. If anxiety or feelings of depression exists, don't hesitate to consult with a psychologist who can assist with more effective coping.
