Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitor therapy is superior to placebo for erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with and without diabetes. No studies directly compare PDE-5 inhibitors (SOR: A, systematic review and RCT). Testosterone treatment may improve sexual function in patients with diabetes and severe hypogonadism (SOR: C, single RCT).
