The endocrine system has a major role in erections in normal men and it can also be a cause of significant morbidity. The relationship between serum testosterone measurement and erectile function is complex. Androgen treatment should certainly be considered in patients without prostate cancer but with a clinical picture that suggests a relevant contribution of hypogonadism to the ED. Other, nondiabetic, endocrine abnormalities may need to be considered in the management or the patient with ED.
