Depression and Sleep Problems Linked to Urologic ConditionsMen with urologic problems might also be at risk for depression and sleep disorders, experts report.

Depression and sleep problems are common with many medical conditions. In this study, researchers from the University of California, Irvine wanted to know how these issues affected men with conditions like erectile dysfunction (ED), prostate problems, and low testosterone.

The participants included 124 men (average age 54) who were patients at a men’s health clinic. The men completed a number of questionnaires that evaluated their erections, prostate health, hormonal status, and general sleepiness. They also answered questions about symptoms of depression, sleep apnea, and insomnia.

Almost half of the men had moderate to severe erectile dysfunction. About 80% had hypogonadism (low testosterone), and 43% had moderate to severe prostate problems.
