Objectives: Diabetes is considered a chronic metabolic disorder which is caused by increased levels of blood sugar. In addition, neurological complications including sexual function disorders are one of the long-term side effects of diabetes. Further, decreased libido, as another complication, is highly prevalent in people with diabetes. Accordingly, the present study aimed to determine sexual function and its predictors in women with type 2 diabetes in Sanandaj, Iran.

Methods: The participants of the study included 254 women (127 married women with type 2 diabetes vs. 127 healthy women) who referred to the diabetes center in Sanandaj during 2016. The randomized sampling method was used to select the study samples. Furthermore, data were collected by demographic and sexual function questionnaires. Finally, the obtained data were analyzed using SPSS software. The P < 0.05 was considered statisticially significant.

Results: The mean (SD) of the total sexual function of healthy women and those with diabetes was 29.89 (±9.8) and 28.83 (±12.1), respectively, indicating that there was a statistically significant difference between the groups in this respect (P = 0.044).

Conclusions: In general, sexual dysfunction was found to be an effective variable in the lives of women with diabetes type 2. Therefore, identifying and treating sexual dysfunction in women can increase life satisfaction and thus result in preserving the families and having a healthy community.
