I’ve noticed a reduction in my sexual desire lately. What might be the cause?


A lack of sexual desire may result from depression or from a common class of antidepressant drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). High blood glucose can also cause sluggishness that results in reduced sexual desire. Additionally, men with diabetes as young as 45 are twice as likely to have a low testosterone level as men without diabetes, often leading to reduced sexual desire. Testosterone deficiency can be treated, as can depression and high blood glucose.
