First, your glucose [blood sugar] is in need of better control, the numbers you posted are high and unhealthy. Uncontrolled diabetes leads to unwanted health issues such as erectile dysfunction [impotence].

Men with diabetes tend to develop erectile dysfunction 10-15 years early than men without diabetes. You can discuss with your doctor oral medications such as Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra. There are other treatments available but type of  treatment depends greatly on your current state of health.
