Hi,

Definitely, the operation of circumcision can be done on him, once his sugar is controlled. Actually, operation of circumcision is rather beneficial for diabetic patients, as diabetic patients having phimosis are at high risk for recurrent infections due to poor hygiene of the area of glance penis.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
