What causes ED?

Common health problems associated with ED.


Diabetes is a disease in which there is too much glucose (sugar) in the blood. Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage nerves and blood vessels, including those that produce erections.

In addition, people with diabetes are also more at risk of having high blood pressure and heart disease, health problems that can also, independently, lead to erection difficulties.
