Jezza, my father had type 2 diabetes and did a poor job of keeping it in control. His wife at the time of his death from other problems (I called her Number 8) called me and asked me to talk to him about keeping controlled.
What I learned: High blood sugar makes the blood vessels brittle, or inflexible. The nurse said his arteries sounded like a tin can. Simply put, if you do not keep it in control, your arteries can't be flexible enough to do what the arteries do when aroused. She said that ED was one of the first symptoms of uncontrolled diabetes in men.
In my father's case, he began to keep the blood sugar in control, and said he found that staying lean and thin helped him to keep wife Number 8 happy.
