(Examples of chronic health issues: menopause, heart disease, ED, diabetes, obesity, fatigue, muscle aches and pains, depression, low energy, decreased sexual desire, allergies, etc.)
  • What should someone do if their doctor has told them their hormone levels are in the “normal range”, but they still feel terrible?
  • What other natural approaches to health do you recommend?

The impact diabetes has on a women’s sexual health

with Dr. Stacy Lindau

Dr. Stacy Lindau, a practicing gynecologist joins the show focusing on sexual health and diabetes with women.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Stacy Lindau discuss the following:

  • Can diabetes harm one's intimate life?
  • What impact does diabetes have on a women’s sexual health?
  • Are there specific symptoms?
  • Can having Type 2 diabetes cause complications in a women’s sexual health?
  • Are there specific symptoms of nerve damage?


Stacey Lindau combines biomedical and social science techniques to study life–course health, aging and sexuality.

As principal investigator of the South Side Health and Vitality Studies, Lindau directs population–based biosocial and health technology research using a community–engaged, minimally invasive approach. This project is the major research component of the University of Chicago Medical Center’s Urban Health Initiative, and it involves dozens of faculty members across biomedical and social science disciplines collaborating with civic leaders and community members living on Chicago’s South Side. This undertaking–inspired by the commitment of the medical profession to the principle of justice–aims to inform and evaluate community–level strategies for health and health care equity for all residents and reflects a central theme of Lindau’s research. Related to this work, Lindau directs the Chicago Core on Biomarkers in Population–Based Health and Aging Research at the University of Chicago and NORC Center on Demography and Economics of Aging, funded by the National Institute on Aging. She also leads the Population–Based Integrated Biology Research Core at the University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine.

As a practicing gynecologist, Lindau translates her population–based research into clinical care via the Program in Integrative Sexual Medicine. PRISM’s Clinic for Women and Girls with Cancer is a unique interdisciplinary program providing medical, psychosocial and physical therapy care for women seeking to prevent sexual problems and recover sexual function following cancer treatment and induced menopause. PRISM’s patient registry and health services research focuses on ways to improve clinical care in this important domain. Lindau is developing a national network of institutions with similar efforts to accelerate research and establish best practices for care of sexual concerns in women with cancer.

Lindau’s research accomplishments include the 2005–06 National Social Life, Health and Aging Project, the first comprehensive study of social relationships, sexuality and aging. She collaborates with several disease–based teams to study sexuality in the context of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cognitive impairment, HIV/AIDS, and several cancer types. She also has contributed research and teaching in the area of sex education. Lindau actively engages with policymakers, including her participation in the recent national health care reform debates.
