This is Dr. David

you need to see a urology doctor

they often will have an erectile dysfunction clinic where they can give you prescdription for penis pump and you can get one at a medical supply store. you also have to use a soft silicone or rubber ring band at the base of the penis with the penile pump to hold blood in the penis

the urologist can also talk to your about TriMix or Quad mix injections into the penis which can result in erections when medications like viagra or cialis or lavetra do not work

testosterone injections may work better for you than testosterone gels

keeping your diabetes in control and keeping your hemoglobin a1c low is the best way to protect your nerves from diabetes damage.

let me know if you have other questions.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
