Psychotherapy for Sex Leads to Better Health for Diabetics

Diabetes can cause many different problems, including medical, psychological and sexual dysfunctions. There was a study done in 2012, recorded by the International Journal of Diabetes Research, to find the psychological impact on sexual health among diabetic population and the association of diabetes with sexual and psychological problems.

Diabetes affects all aspect of sexual dysfunction including sex drive, functions and satisfaction. The most reported problem associated with sexual function and diabetes is erectile dysfunction for men – it is widely recognized complication of the disease. However, research supports that this might be a result of depression and not a direct result of diabetes. In women, it leads to psychological and social problems.

The key point of this research is that effective psychotherapy for sexual health problems can have a significant impact because it has proven effective for battling depression, psychological and social problems. The benefit to this treatment would be increased health among the diabetic population.
