In brief: Just the usual

The viagra (sildenafil) type drugs (viagra (sildenafil), Cialis and levitra) bascially have similar side effects.
(headache, stuffy nose, and flushing)unless you are diabetic with heart disease requiring nitrates, diabetes has no bearing on whether it is safe to use those drugs. In fact, millions of men with diabetes have been helped by those drugs. Remember viagra (sildenafil) was originally designed to help men with heart disease!

In brief: No.

Erectile dysfunction (ed) is common in diabetics.
Viagra (sildenafil) type medications can be helpful for this problem. Control of diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol are important. Not smoking is a must.
