Should see doc..: Safest and easiest/simplest to help is getting an evaluation by your doc because of multiple problems as heart disease/vascular insufficiency/diabetes etc.. Once these are controlled/treated, medications such as cialis/levitra/viagra can help to improve and maintain erections. It is nothing like when u were 17, but these meds do help. There is no good otc med available. Consult doc. Good luck

Weight loss surgery: With your medical problems, you might consider seein a bariatric surgeon to see if you might be a candidate for weight loss surgery. The ed is due toady factors, which often improve after significant weight loss. Imagine not having diabetes or progressive atherosclerosis of your vessels. Worth considering.

Ed: Would recommend you run any treatments by your cardiologist you have alot of vascular disease do there is no simple answer.
