In brief: Yes

There are many medical conditions that will affect the ability to achieve an erection.
The most common conditions typically include diabetes, hi blood pressure, and hi cholesterol. The degree of erectile dysfunction increases as the more uncontrolled these conditions become. Keeping these conditions under control will help minimize sequele of erectile dysfunction.

In brief: Yes

High blood pressure can damage the arteries in the penis and cause erectile dysfunction.
Some medications used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) can also lead to erectile dysfunction, but your doctor should be able to prescribe one that does not do this commonly.
