Impotence is now recognised as a common and distressing disorder, which was previously neglected by the medical profession. New therapies have increased the awareness of doctors and the general public of the problem, and sufferers now expect effective treatment. Thus all physicians involved in the care of diabetic patients should have an understanding of the management of impotence. This first volume in the Advances in Diabetes series provides this understanding, covering the pathophysiology and epidemiology of diabetic impotence as well as its modern management. Helpful chapters provide practical advice on how to set up an impotence clinic and the role of the general practitioner.
