One in Five Men with New-Onset ED Have Prediabetes
Most Men Satisfied With Buried Penis Repair Technique
Screening men with new-onset erectile dysfunction (ED) for prediabetes could be beneficial, new research suggests.
In a study of 372 men with new-onset ED, 23% met the criteria for a prediabetes diagnosis.
The men with prediabetes tended to be older, obese, and have more comorbid conditions than men with normal blood glucose levels.
They also had lower total testosterone levels and higher levels of triglycerides and total cholesterol.

Surgery is a viable way to repair a buried penis, and new study describes a technique that has patient satisfaction rates of 80% to 90%.
The approach was discussed in detail in June by Dr. Marshall C. Strother, et al. in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Their report, "Adult Buried Penis Repair with Escutcheonectomy and Split-Thickness Skin Grafting" is the subject of our website's latest research summary.
