Objective: Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder which is caused by increased levels of blood sugar. One of the long-term complications of diabetes are neurological complications. Sexual function disorder is a neurological complication of diabetes. Sexual function disorder is another neurological complication of diabetes. Decreased libido is highly prevalent in people with diabetes. The following study was conducted to determine sexual function and its predictors in women with type 2 diabetes in Sanandaj, Iran.

Materials and Methods: This study was conducted on 127 married women with type 2 diabetes referring to the diabetes center in Sanandaj in 2016; as well as, 127 healthy women referred to health centers of the same city. Randomized sampling method was used. Data were collected by using demographic, and sexual function questionnaires. Data analysis was performed using SPSS version 16. The p value less than 0.05 was considered as significant.

Results: The mean (SD) of total sexual function in healthy subjects was 29.89 (±9.8) and in diabetes group it was 28.83 (±12.1). There was a significant statistical difference between the groups (p=0.044).

Conclusion: Sexual dysfunction was an effective variable on the lives of women with diabetes type 2. Identification and treatment of sexual dysfunction in women can increase the life satisfaction resulting in preserving the families, ending in having a healthy community.
