Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Control your blood sugar level and do a blood flow doppler study on the penis.

Thank you doctor,

I do not want a doppler test as I do not want to disclose myself.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Erectile dysfunction or shrinking in the penis occurs in diabetic patients due to uncontrolled HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) levels. So it results in causing atherosclerosis or blockage of blood vessels in the penis causing erectile dysfunction or shrinkage in size. Follow a strict diabetic diet. Check your HbA1c levels and TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) levels frequently. Try to keep HbA1c levels below 7. Take a good nutritious diet with multivitamin and calcium supplements. Try to do moderate exercise daily for 25 minutes. If you have a problem with erection, then you can take tablet Sildenafil 50 mg half an hour before intercourse. Doppler test is done by a radiologist and it is confidential. Have a follow-up after getting the reports.

Thank you doctor,

What is the medicine given for having improper blood flow in the penis?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

There are two methods. If there is a blockage in the major vessel, then it has to be removed or it can be treated by taking a blood thinner. But this has to be done only after doing radio imaging.

Thank you doctor,

Thank you for helping me a lot.
