Women with Diabetes Suffer Less Sexual Satisfaction

New research finds that while women with diabetes have sex just as often as those that don’t have the disease they do not get as much enjoyment from it. According to a report published by the University of California San Francisco on the Obstetrics and Gynecology website, women with diabetes reported low sexual satisfaction and it was even worse for women with diabetes who are also on insule even though there was almost no difference in sexual desire or activity. The authors wrote that “While many diabetic women are interested and engaged in sexual activity, diabetes is associated with a markedly decreased sexual quality of life in women.” Many of the complications that come from having diabetes such as heart disease, renal failure, stroke and peripheral neuropathy are all associated with decreased sexual function in women.
