Dear XXX
As I am the Diet Expert, I think you should ask CyberDoc this question too. From a dietary point of view your boyfriend needs to have a special diet worked out for him by a clinical dietitian, because the correct diet is one of the most important factors in treatment. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. If his blood sugar levels are well controlled and if he does regular exercise then his condition should not interfere with his sexual performance.
