Description

The purpose of this study is to find out if androgen deficiency (low levels of testosterone, a male hormone produced by the sex glands) and erectile dysfunction (sexual dysfunction) will predict over time the development of a heart attack, stroke, or death in men with Diabetes Mellitus who are undergoing coronary revascularization. A substudy aims to show the different factors and processes that may show a relationship between sexual function and levels of androgen in the body to heart disease.
