Study finds that Viagra doesn't always treat erectile dysfunction caused by diabetic nerve damage and blood vessel disease
Many men diagnosed with diabetes who suffer from erectile dysfunction think that their blood sugar disorder is to blame, but this is all wrong.

It's true that erectile dysfunction is very common among diabetic men, but diabetes itself isn't to blame. The real culprits here are diabetic nerve damage and blood vessel disease. That said, factors like stress, depression and blood pressure-lowering medication can also play a role.

A recent study that involved nearly 28,000 men in North America, South America and Europe took a closer look at the link between diabetes and erectile dysfunction. It found that Viagra isn't always a solution for erectile dysfunction caused by diabetic nerve damage and blood vessel disease.

Viagra doesn’t always treat erectile dysfunction caused by diabetic nerve damage and blood vessel disease

The study, called Men’s Attitudes to Life Events and Sexuality or MALES, found that 16% of the men had erectile dysfunction, but nearly 40% of those with diabetes had problems with erections. 
 
The study also found that diabetic men were much more likely than non-diabetic men to consider their erectile dysfunction “severe” or permanent. Even more interesting, it noted that these men were more likely to discontinue taking drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra because they found that they didn’t treat their erection problems.
 
If you’re a diabetic man currently experiencing erectile dysfunction and find that Viagra doesn’t help, there are thankfully a number of other libido-boosting remedies that you can try.

These Viagra alternatives can help improve erection problems in diabetic men

The following story submitted by William Bornstein, MD, an endocrinologist based in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA, appeared on Health.com:
 
“Dick Robbins, 72, of Hot Springs Village, Ark, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2001. He experienced erectile dysfunction and saw an urologist for help. He tried Viagra with little success as well as another drug, alprostadil. Alprostadil is delivered via injection into the shaft of the penis or by suppositories inserted into the tip of the penis. One of the important messages is, if you are having a problem, be sure and tell your doctor.”
 
While an injection in your shaft may sound painful and downright dreadful, Bornstein assures that they’re very helpful. He goes on to tell that a few years after Robbins’ first wife died, he remarried and came clean about his erection problems before tying the knot with his new wife.
 
“I haven't tried anything since then and she accepts that and we’re living with it. We’re in love with each other so that's secondary. When I was 20 years old, it was the most important thing in my life. Now that I’m 70, it’s OK,” Robbins wrote.
 
Another option you can consider when pills don’t work is a vacuum pump, says Bornstein. These devices help to temporarily expand the penis, he explains. 
 
If maintaining an erection is the problem, Bornstein recommends rubber rings, known as constriction rings, which you place at the base of the penis to help retain an erection throughout sexual intercourse.
 
Bornstein adds that no matter how embarrassed you may be about suffering erectile dysfunction, you should always be open and honest with your doctor about it. “One of the important messages is, if you are having a problem, be sure and tell your doctor. Maybe he needs to change your medication or maybe we need to investigate whether there’s some reason for it. There are lots of things we can do for that,” he says.
