All medicines which you are taking have very little effect on libido .Your problem can be due to diabetic neuropathy or low testosterone level that is male menopause.

Mr T Subba Rao, are you having T1 or T2 DM? By referring as 'Insulin dependent" you mean, to control sugar levels along with oral drugs Insulin injections are also being used is it? Any way, If your fasting level is closer to 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7, then the disease is in good control. Gastric trouble is very non specific description. Are you having hyperacidity or belching with gaseousness or burning sensation in the epigastric region ? What is the problem? Most often hyperacidity occurs due to a number of reasons like over weight, smoking, alcoholism, eating too much of spicy food, remaining hungry for very long time, irregular food habits etc. To control this you should develop regular food habits, eat a small quantity every 2 to 3 hours, avoid spicy, oily and too sweet foods. Refrain from smoking and alcohol. Remain erect afer food for at least 2 to 3 hours. Avoid taking pain killers and other drugs which initiate gastric secretions. Use antacids if need be.

You are aware diabetes occurs because there is either less insulin or there is resistance to its action. Therefore, the best drug is insulin injection. But in some patients (majority of t2dm) oral antidiabetic drugs control the blood sugar very well at least for initial years of the disease.

For diabetes and blood pressure follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Keep your fasting blood sugar between 80-130 and post meal between 100-150. Don't be stressed out as stress is known to increase your erection problem and blood sugar. Try some meditation or yoga.
