|Summary:||Title: Erectile dysfunction: prevalence, associated factors and quality of life in Tumbes Introduction: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a public health problem defined as the inability to maintain an erection sufficient to obtain sexual satisfaction. The main organic factor is Diabetes Mellitus (DM). Besides, it has been described that it affects the quality of life. Objective: The aim of the study is to evaluate an association between erectile dysfunction and quality of life in men from the urban-marginal zone of Tumbes; as well as the prevalence and risk factors associated with ED. Materials and methods: This was a cross-sectional study of population-based secondary data. We have included men between 30 and 69 years old. The erectile dysfunction was self-reported and Quality of life was evaluated with the EuroQol-5D scale. To determinate the relationships between independent variables was used Poisson and robust regression. Results: The analysis was performed in 342 men, the mean age was 48.1 years (Standard Desviation: 10.6 years) and the prevalence of ED was 9.1% of the population. According to the study being 50 years old or older (PR: 3.8 IC95% 1.6-8.9), depressive symptoms (RP: 3.3 IC95% 1.2-8.5), and diabetes mellitus (RP: 3.8 IC95% 1.8-8.4) were factors associated with ED. However, presence ED was not associated with low quality of life. Conclusion: One out of ten men reports erectile dysfunction in the study population, similar to the global prevalence. The ED increases with age, one out of three patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) has ED and depression increases 3 times the probability of having ED. However, ED was not associated with quality of life in the sample.|
