This is Dr. David

many years of diabetes can cause damage to nerves and cause loss of erections.

do you have type 2 diabetes? this comes from being overweight.

are you overweight?

you have to loose weight with diet and exercise to reverse diabetes to help your erections.

has your doctor talked to you about stomach bipass surgery or barriatric surgery to help you loose weight?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
