Diabetes is an example of an endocrine disease that can cause a person to experience impotence. Diabetes affects the body’s ability to utilize the hormone insulin. One of the side effects associated with chronic diabetes is nerve damage. This affects penis sensations. Other complications associated with diabetes are impaired blood flow and hormone levels. Both of these factors can contribute to impotence.
Los hábitos de riesgo que pueden conducir a que se desarrolle DE son: el consumo de sustancias adictivas legales (tabaquismo, el consumo excesivo de alcohol) o ilegales, el estrés. Un indicador de la DE física, en contraposición con la psicológica, es la incapacidad de experimentar o mantener una erección al despertarse por la mañana. La DE que persista por más de tres meses y que no sea debida a un suceso estresante evidente, al consumo de sustancias adictivas, al consumo de alcohol o a afecciones médicas transitorias que causan DE señala la necesidad de recibir atención médica por parte de un urólogo.

The most important organic causes of impotence are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery), hormonal insufficiencies (hypogonadism) and drug side effects. Psychological impotence is where erection or penetration fails due to thoughts or feelings (psychological reasons) rather than physical impossibility; this is somewhat less frequent but can often be helped. In psychological impotence, there is a strong response to placebo treatment.
