Presence of depression in diabetic patients is the most important factor leading to erectile dysfunction in them.

Depression instigates erectile dysfunction and erectile dysfunction perpetuates the symptoms of depression.

Diabetic patients who complained of erectile dysfunction in the study also had higher prevalence of high blood pressure and cholesterol abnormalities. These patients were also of older age with uncontrolled diabetes, history of smoking and longer duration of diabetes. It was also shown that patients who develop erectile dysfunction also had eye disorders, neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease.

Effective control of diabetes may reduce both depressive symptoms and erectile dysfunctions in such cases.

India is the diabetic capital of the world and both the incidence and prevalence of diabetes are increasing day by day. It is, therefore, important for the family physician to look for presence of depression in patients with diabetes.

God has grown only those fruits and vegetables, which are necessary in that season in that particular location. For example, during summer, the body requires more liquids and regular flushing of the kidney because of extreme heat so that dehydration does not damage kidney. To prevent this, nature produces vegetables and fruits in this season that are juicier and increase urination.


All summer fruits e.g. mango, litchi, watermelon, musk melon, wood apple (bel), etc. are juicy fruits. All vegetables grown in summer such as bottle gourd (ghiya), snake gourd (torai), apple gourd (tinda) grow on creepers and they all have a mild diuretic action.

In summer, where the humidity is not so high like in Delhi, one need not take coconut water, which is only required as a treatment of humidity–related diseases. Therefore, nature grows coconuts only in the coastal areas.
