Thanks for posting your query.

I can appreciate your concern for your sister.

I do not see any reason for worry in her case.

A.1. Yes, she can have normal sex life with him.
A.2. No precautions needed
A.3. No they are not contagious and she can acquire them from him.

The diseases that he is having are not contagious and are not sexually transmitted. There is absolute no reason for concern.

Just ask her to take good care of him so that all these diseases remain under control and they both can live a happy and healthy life.

I hope this helps and clarify your concern.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.

In case you do not have further query, please accept the answer.
