Men with ED had lower levels of total testosterone and bioavailable testosterone compared to men without ED but the free testosterone index was not different. Surprisingly, the hsCRP was higher in men with ED compared to the others. The multivariate analysis found a new potential role of hsCRP as a predictive marker of ED in men with diabetes, aged>55 years. AbstractTo date, there is no evidence regarding the best biological marker to predict erectile dysfunction (ED) in men aged>55  years with type 2 diabetes. This prospective study included data from men aged>55  years with type 2 diabetes. E...

Despite this limitation, our review demonstrated that autonomic dysfunction is very common among alcohol abusers.
