From Web TV:

Can the new impotence drug Viagra also help Type 1 diabetics who are impotent as a result of diabetes? Any help or referral you can provide would be greatly appreciated.


Yes, according to my recent patient who had already tried it.

According to the official Viagra website:

A review of population subgroups demonstrated efficacy regardless of baseline severity, etiology, race and age. VIAGRA was effective in a broad range of ED patients, including those with a history of coronary artery disease, hypertension, other cardiac disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, depression, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), radical prostatectomy, trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and spinal cord injury, and in patients taking anti-depressants/anti-psychotics and anti-hypertensives/diuretics.
