Brief Answer:
My suggestion.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I understand you have a problem with your erection. I would like to know if you have any medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension or any atherosclerotic heart problems. Are you on multiple medications?

In elderly people, due to vascular blood insufficiency, erections may get affected. This erection problem may also be a result of some drug interactions.

Please provide these details to help you.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
My suggestion.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone through medical history and condition. As your sugar levels are under control and you have no cardiac problems, I would like to suggest you try phosphodiesterase inhibitors like Sildenafil or Tadalafil to improve your erection.

Hope this information helps you.

Thank you.
