Survey Reveals Diabetics Feel the Condition Impacts on Their Mood and Sex Life
Date:8/27/2009

LONDON, August 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A new research study carried out by The Research Partnership reveals that living with diabetes can have a major effect on people's lives, with just under half (44%) of type 2 patients reporting that the condition has impacted on either their ability or their desire to have sex.

Over half claim to spend a lot of time thinking about their health, say they eat well and make sure they stay healthy, but many are clearly not managing to stick to a good diet and exercise regime. The vast majority in the UK and US are clinically obese, and around a third of patients from all countries never engage in any physical exercise. The survey found a clear correlation between those with a high BMI index and lack of exercise. Interestingly, whilst doctors in all co
