What is it about?
Our study explored the experiences of Indonesian men with Type-2 Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction (ED). We interviewed men to understand how they felt about ED, their healthcare interactions, and any challenges they faced. Many men experienced ED but didn't discuss it with doctors due to embarrassment. They tried various solutions, even risky ones, on their own. Our findings highlight the need for better communication and support from healthcare professionals for men with diabetes and ED. This research could lead to improved care for these men and their partners.

Why is it important?
Our study focuses on a rarely discussed topic: the experiences of Indonesian men with both Type-2 Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction (ED). This research sheds light on the challenges these men face and the lack of support they receive from healthcare professionals. By addressing this gap in understanding, we hope to raise awareness about the importance of discussing ED in diabetes care and improve the overall well-being of these men and their partners. This unique perspective could resonate with readers who are interested in men's health, diabetes management, and improving healthcare communication.
