spike231 posted:
ok here is the deal, I am 45 I have type II diabetes. I have noticed that my erections are not fully as hard as they once were, and I don't get them near as often. sometimes during sex i will lose what erection i have. what is going on? and is this reversible? I went to see a Dr about two months ago he gave me some samples of Cialis but they did nothing to help the issue.. what else can i do?

I'd suggest you go see your doctor and tell him that the Cialis wasn't all that helpful for you.

Medicine is often more of an art than a science and the first thing you try might not be what you need.

Stay on top of looking after yourself and keep working at it. That's certainly a good thing to be doing!

You have Type II diabetes, which is the cause for your ed. A majority of diabetes patients exp ED problem. Excess sugar level in diabetic patient damages blood vessels and affects the flow of blood to the penile area, then due to improper blood supply to the penile area results in erectile dysfunction. Ed is common in diabetic patients.
RobertPatrick responded:
Another thing i want to tell you. If you want to diagnose ED problem then first of all reduce you blood sugar. After that have some herbal remedy which is side effects free to cure Ed.
