Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor

The two most common causes of Erectile Dysfunction in Males are:
1. Diabetic Neuropathy
2. Psychogenic Erectile dysfunction.
In your case since you are a diabetic, so that is the cause.
I would advise you to get color Doppler of penile vessels.
In such situation, I advise the following:
1. To take Methylcobalamin supplementation.
2. To use Sildenafil as on when required basis that is whenever sex is desired.
3. To cut down his alcohol as this would cause his diabetes uncontrolled as well as reduces erection when sex is tried after consumption of alcohol.
4. To keep his blood sugars well controlled.
This is my best opinion for you.
You should discuss with your Doctor before acting upon any advice.

Stay healthy.
