Default ED Someone Needs to Talk About It!

Hi all,
I am 65 type two for around 8 years and married to my sole mate for 47 years, and for an old gal, she is hot!

When I started on this website in May of 2015 I weighted 320 at 6'2"! My A1c had crept up to 7.9 last summer (2014), the highest ever since I was diagnosed when it was 11.0. Around two years ago I started having problems with Erectile Dysfunction, I had been using Viagra for some time maybe 5-6 years, and I did try all the others. At first is was occasional then progressed to always! I went to my Urologist and he suggested I try an injectable Really, I use needles all the time but not their! He assured me it would be ok. So I agreed and after reviewing how to do it...I tried it....and WaaaaaaLahhhhhh! Bingo, it worked..........for a while but within a few months....it did not work. Enter LCHF on 5-1-2015!

When I went to my Internist in July my A1c had dropped to 6.0, my blood pressure was 125/75, my cholesterol was the best in years and my weight has now dropped to 290!

I went to my Urologist again and showed him my results and said can you get me some stronger injectable stuff, he said I sure can, but you probably will not need it, go home and try Viagra again! So I did and guess what.... The last smile is my wife....

Thank God to all of you who helped me find this LCHF solution....

My reason for sharing this is to let other males and/or married couples know that they do not necessarily have to live life without having an intimate relationship. Medical science has advanced very fast in this area over the last 10 years.

I wish more guys would be reading this....if they are not already dealing with ED they soon will be....it can lead to depression, but can be dealt with in over 90% of the cases.
