Thanks for your response Lou. If one is awarded a service connection for Diabetes type 2 I would think a proven or rather a clinical diagnosis of Erectile Dysfunction would be an automatic award. I wonder how they prove Erectile Dysfunction is NOT connected to a service connected case of Diabetes. Really strange.
Rich, no automatics in my experience, if you don't specifically state in your claim for diabetes that it caused ED, then in my experience (unless possibly it was discussed in a C&P exam) how would they know? I had a friend that had prostate cancer (eventual removal) he had to claim ED to get approval, which he finally did when his claim was approved at a BVA hearing. He claimed Prostate cancer and ED. He won but is still fighting for residuals. So, no automatics (even residuals), if you don't put it in your claim the first time, refile or add it. LouB.
