    Sexual dysfunction (SD) in patients with chronic kidney disease is common and negatively impacts quality of life. SD is often under-appreciated because of overall low awareness. Diagnosis of SD is subjective, and manifestations can be different among men and women. Causes of SD are multifactorial, including psychological disorders, hormonal imbalances, vascular disorders, neurological disorders, and medication side effects. Non-specific approaches to improving sexual function include addressing underlying psychological disorders, promoting lifestyle modifications, optimizing dialysis care, and facilitating successful kidney transplantation, whereas treatment with phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor, hormone replacement, and mechanical devices can be offered to patients with specific indications.
