Brief Answer:
In some patient, it does effect.

Detailed Answer:
Hi sir, i have gone through your query and understood your concerns.

Yes, men with diabetes often have reduced testosterone levels, which can affect their sex drive. However, the main sexual health problem affecting men with diabetes is an inability to achieve or maintain an erection, known as erectile dysfunction (ED). This doesn't occur in every diabetic. It happens in only few.

Regular exercise and good diet, keeping blood sugars in control will help you to be normal. Both wife and husband together can understand and improve the condition. Good control of sugar levels itself will allow the condition to be normal.

Thank you
Wish you good health.
