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.

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.
