Abstract OBJECTIVES: To determine the effect of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) as a major risk factor for severe erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with metabolic syndrome (MS). METHODS: The study included 93 patients aged 30-70 years who had MS and ED. MS patients were divided into 2 groups: 37 patients with neither T2DM nor abnormal fasting glucose level (group 1) and 56 patients with T2DM (group 2). The severity of ED was determined according to the first 5-question version of the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5). The MS was defined according to the 2005 International Diabetes Federation consensus definition. Logistic regression analysis, t test, and chi(2) tests were used to investigate the impact of T2DM on ED severity. RESULTS: The mean age of the patients was 55.5 years (P = .313). Eleven patients in group 1 (29.7\%) and 42 patients in group 2 (75\%) had severe ED (IIEF-5 score
