Background: The complications from alcoholism to aborigines from Taiwan do not only include physical, mental health, marital, family problems, but it is also associated with sexual functions problems. As the related researches are few in the field, hence the aim of this research includes the association between alcoholism and erectile dysfunction for aborigines in Taiwan and to investigate the factors and correlation of alcoholism with erectile dysfunction. Method: This research we collected 94 aborigines with alcoholism and 98 aborigines without alcoholism, the
data are collected with consent from health examination from local government, clinic and house calls. The data include subjects’ basic personal data, indicator of arteriosclerosis, blood examination and questions about sexual function and sexual desires, the total valid sample
collected were 192. The data were processed by narrative analysis to find the variables, associations and differences and via using logistic regressive model to find the possible variable that affected erectile dysfunction and further discussion with the outcome. Result: With the
192 aborigine participants, there were 94 who has alcoholism and 98 who does not have alcoholism. The study has found that alcoholism and erectile dysfunction are related for those aborigines. The factors that may IV
affect erectile function include age, alcoholism, atherosclerosis index for high sensitivity C-reactive protein and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, metabolic syndrome and others. The study also shown free testosterone, total testosterone and bioaviable testosterone are lower for those Taiwanese aborigines who has erectile dysfunction. After the multiple logistic regression analysis it demonstrated that erectile dysfunction, free testosterone, age, metabolic syndrome and alcoholism shown a significant relation between the four factors. Discussion: Rate of having metabolic syndrome, erectile dysfunction and obesity is higher in Taiwanese aborigine, and these are the risk factors for cardiovascular
diseases. Prevalence of alcoholism and metabolic syndrome are high among the aborigines’ community, within these aborigines the prevalence for erectile dysfunction are even higher. Erectile dysfunction is closely related to alcoholism, metabolic syndrome, age and free testosterone
among these aborigines. Metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis and erectile dysfunction are the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Hence we need to pay more attention to those Taiwanese aborigines who have erectile dysfunction.
