Relative risks (RR) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CI) were adopted to estimate the association between gout and the risk of ED. Sensitivity analyses were applied to evaluate the robustness of results. Overall, 355,...

ED was assessed in participants using the five-item version of the International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire. Insulin resistance (IR) was estimated using the ho...
