Hello, I'm a 23 year old type 1 diabetic for 17 years now. I am suffering from peripheral neuropathy in my feet and legs and gastroparesis for about a year now. My blood sugar levels range from low hundreds to high twos and higher on bad days which are more often than they should be but my endocrinologist and I are working on this. Thinking about a pump. But In this year I have noticed tremendously that my erections are now..how can I say...half cocked, semi-hard, just not what it should or used to be. WHAT CAN BE THE REASON FOR THIS AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE?? And how can I improve these symptoms. Please help and keep in contact with me...i am new very nervous now :/ thank you!!

Hi and welcome. Peripheral/autonomic neuropathy does cause erectile dysfunction in diabetic men. As a ex DE all I would suggest is talking to you endocronologist/GP as there are drug treatments available to help maintain erection but sadly as it is due to nerve damage it is not a fully reversible ailment.
