medical condition of erectile dysfunction

Resolved Question:

I am a diabetic patient and got diagnosed with the medical condition of erectile dysfunction? My diabetic doctor just ignored my complaint on this sexual problem and doesn’t seem to be interested in treating me at all. How can I make him understand about this problem seriously and get it solved?

Thanks for your question. It is really unfortunate for you to have this kind of sexual deficiency. And I guess your medical history of having diabetes can also be a cause for this problem. Frankly speaking endocrinologists or physicians doesn’t entertain to take treatment of erectile dysfunction as it doesn’t fall under their treatment regimen. If you doctor is not showing interest in your current situation then you should better take the necessary help from a urologist. Urologists are specialised in treating this medical condition of erectile dysfunction and would be really happy to undertake this particular aspect of your treatment. Make sure that you continue with your treatment for diabetes along with the treatment for this sexual dysfunction as they are related.
