Type 2 diabetic has neuropathy and ed. Is there a link? Ed meds are not helping. Sugars @ 200's. Any ideas on how to improve ed?

In brief: Yes

There is a clear link between diabetes and erectile dysfunction (ed).
Diabetes also causes neuropathy. These conditions worsen much more rapidly the higher the glucose level so adequate control of blood glucose levels are of utmost importance. There are many treatment options for ED including oral pills, vacuum pump, injection therapy to the penis, or surgery for an implant if all else fails.

In brief: Several thoughts

Ed meds may not help if there is extensive neuropathy present.
All of those medications require an adequate testosterone level to work. To ask the popular television question....Do you have low t?
