Hi Aman, Welcome to HealthCare Magic Forum. First of all relax. Diabetes is not a killing disase if it is properly controlled. Take proper sugar free diet and add more green vegetables. Do regular exercise. Have regular checkup with your physician with blood sugar monitoring.You can have an unprotected sex. Avoid alcohol. Dont overstrain yourself which can itself increase your sugar values. Cosult your physician.
