  • Hi.. As far as I know ED happens due to damage to corresponding nerves because of uncontrolled diabetes. Please monitor your BS levels and HbA1c levels regularly. Contact a sexologist to check if you are suffering from ED. Take care.

  • Go for ayurveda. You are from which place, I can suggest doctor

  • IF YOU ARE TAKING ALLOPATHY MEDICINE YOU ARE BOUND TO SUFFER BY E.D. SWITCH OVER TO OTHER WAYS. GEORGE;S LONG WHEAT, MEDI FREE'S LCHF, BINDII WATER ETC. YOU MAY START WATER THERAPY ALSO IN THE MORNING.

  • NAGPUR

  • What is your FBS/PPBS/A1C?

    Maintain these numbers same as that of a non diabetic and you can forget about ED due to diabetes. Diabetes related ED is nothing but Diabetic Neuropathy which will effect everything including sex organ. A1C < 5.7 always.

    Going by your age, you are Type 1. In that case, go through all the videos of a TYPE 1 hero (an engineer and doctor) who has been injecting regular insulin as a Type 1 since seven decades, but lives on a very low carb high fat diet

    If you can afford, buy his book and go through it.

  • What is your sugar levels and Hba1c.If sugar is not under control then it may happen therefore maintain sugar strictly below 180 after meal.and morning below 120.

  • Diabetes affects almost every major function of the body, due to the fact that cell nutrition is affected. In males, sexual function is a marked symptom at times the initial one. Blood supply is the predominant route to nutrition for every body cell. In patients with persistent high sugar levels, cell nutrition is imbalanced affecting every cell function. With easy weakness of the erectile muscles, men may not be able to sustain erection.

    Hence, diabetic control is essential to managing ED.

  • From your records it appears that yours case is type 1.You might be taking insuline.This is the only way.Maintain your sugar level strictly as of non diabetic.i.e HbA1c <5.6. follow low carb diet.Read the book by Dr Brenstein.He is the master and the legend.Follow him. Thanks.Take care.

  • In lay man terms, diabetics have decreased blood flow to extremities due to vascular complications(arteries and veins). Another complication is diabetic neuropathy in which your nerve endings get inflammed and subsequently numb. Both blood flow and sensation are required to achieve turgidity and sustenance of erection. Hence Diabetics are more vulnerable to ED. Action plan is go to your doctor and explain your condition.

    -you havent pecified your BS levels and medication.
