Dear Malesa

Erectile dysfunction is unfortunately a common problem in diabetes, and is caused by nerve and blood vessel damage secondary to high blood sugar over time. Most of the time the damage is not reversible and hence treatment is need in the form of PDE 5 inhibitors, like levitra, cialis and viagra, which dilated blood vessels to help stimulate an erection. These are only available on prescription, and hence you will need to see your doctor. If the tablets don’t work as well as they should, then you should also have your testosterone checked as it may also be low, and treating this can also help.
