Diabetes may be defined as the condition in which the level of blood glucose (sugar) is too high. This problem, if persistent can damage the function of muscle fibers within blood vessels and vascular tissues, including the erectile tissue of the penis, and of the small nerves and arteries throughout the body. ED can be a common problem for men diabetics, and the worst part is that ED prescription pill like Levitra, Cialis or Viagra are not so effectual in diabetics suffering from Ed as compared to normal ED cases. A recent study reveals that up to 60 per cent of diabetic men will eventually develop the problem.
