E.D. is quite common on its own, but when you add diabetes to the  equation, the connection to E.D. is even more prevalent. In fact, 52.5% of  men with diabetes are affected by E.D., and men with diabetes are 3.5X more likely to experience E.D. than those without.  

With time, diabetes can lead to E.D. by damaging nerves and the  endothelial lining of blood vessels, leading to impaired sensitivity and  blood flow to the penis. You can imagine how lack of blood flow can directly  interfere with the ability to have an erection. 

How Can I Treat E.D. Caused by Diabetes?

When symptoms of E.D. start showing up, there are a myriad of holistic and  pharmaceutical interventions that can help get you back to a thriving and  healthy sex life.

Here are your main options:

From left to right: PDE5 inhibitor pills, Rugiet Ready, Trimix injections, surgical penile implant.


While traditionally sildenafil or tadalafil pills have been the first stop  for treatment, they might not always be the last. If they do everything  you need them to do, then keep doing what works. If not, then you have more  options before going straight to injections.

Rugiet Ready

If pills don’t do the job, Rugiet Ready  is a non-invasive next step. Although, you can choose to bypass the pills in  the first place and go straight to Rugiet Ready.

Penile injections are a way to treat severe E.D. It requires injecting  yourself before intercourse or sexual activity. This is an effective  treatment when oral pharmaceutical intervention isn’t working. If you need  this level of intervention after trying Rugiet  Ready and discussing it with your Rugiet  doctor or urologist, you should go forward with it.

Surgical Implant

There are some cases where severe E.D. is not responding to the treatment  options listed above. This is usually the point where people opt for a  surgical penile implant.

Every day, the experts at Rugiet  Health talk to people who experience E.D. because of diabetes. We are  proud to say we hear many success  stories from these members who say Rugiet Ready is their preferred treatment for E.D.

In combination with pharmaceutical treatment, many doctors will recommend  making healthy lifestyle changes. We fully believe pharmaceutical treatments work best when taken in conjunction with holistic changes to your lifestyle, whether that is through increased exercise, healthier diets, or fully  accepting E.D. and its impact on your life. 

Living with diabetes can have its challenges, but it doesn’t mean the end of your sex life. Be sure to discuss all concerns with your doctor before beginning any kind of treatment.
