Brief Answer:
Check thyroids. Mess suggested

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I think I can help you.
First, long standing diabetes may be a cause of the erectile dysfunction.
I would suggest use of tablets like sildenafil.
Since you are a long standing diabetic, I also suggest testing a cardiac work up with echocardiography to make sure that the medicine is safe for you.
Continue good control of sugars.
Check thyroid function test every 3 to 6 months.
Best of luck, Dr Mittal
