Studies indicate up to 75% of men who have type 2 diabetes experience some form of erectile dysfunction and it usually occurs between 10 to 15 years earlier than men who do not have diabetes. Diabetes occurs when there is absence of insulin or insulin resistance. Possible cause include autoimmune disease, obesity, genetics or age. Diabetes may go unnoticed until organ damage begins. In particular, erectile dysfunction is the most common presentation in the presence of nerve damage due to impaired blood flow.
