Erectile dysfunction — the inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough for sex — is common in men who have diabetes, especially those with type 2 diabetes. It can stem from damage to nerves and blood vessels caused by poor long-term blood sugar control.

These can be effective when that cause of ED is physical, and they also work well when the cause is unknown or related to anxiety. If an underlying condition, such as diabetes, is causing ED, treating it will often reverse ED or prevent it from worsening.

Men with diabetes having trouble with achieving and/or maintaining an erection can take oral medications like sildenafil (Revatio, Viagra), tadalafil (Adcirca,Cialis), avanafil (Stendra), or vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn).

Consult your doctor.


If a person is senior will it be applicable ?. Apart from DM2 he is also having obesity, edema, prostate, Anemia, Fatty Liver UTI.
