Are you obese: Looks like you need to exercise, loss weight and eat less carbohydrates. You may need evaluation for sleep apnea .May see a urologist if no improvement.

Meds or conditions: Poor sleep and loss of am erections could both be signs either of less-than-ideal control of your diabetes or blood pressure, or medication side effects, or also another underlying problem, such as sleep apnea. A full evaluation with your primary care doctor should help get to the bottom of these problems, so s/he can treat in a way that improves your quality of life (and sleep!).

Yes: Not getting refreshing sleep is always a problem. Also it is not normal to never awaken at your age without morning erections. You have a complicated case that definitely needs further evaluation an management by your doctor.
