Suffering Diabetes Ed
PDE5 inhibitors: Hi. Make sure your diabetes is well controlled. Do you have any neuropathic or vascular complications? I'd start with the PDE5 inhibitors (the Viagra (sildenafil) family). If that doesn't do it, there is a prostaglandin drug you either inject into the penis or slip up the urethra. Lastly there are surgical implants (urologists do these). Good luck! Let's put a smile on both your faces! ;-) ...Read more
