    G'day,
    I am Australian, living in Thailand. I have been T1 for 34 years, and the condition is beginning to catch up on me. Living here in Thailand, I see more than one specialist every month, I am well looked after. When I first registered here, the reaction was amazement that I had lived with it so long, the life expectancy of diabetics here is 15 -20 years. Now, they're trying to keep me going so they can write prize winning r5eports at the end of it all. I have a long way to go yet.
    OK, I have a big problem. I have the beginnings of neuropathy, and I believe it's causing me to be impotent. Totally. I'd like to know if there is any sort of treatment for it, apart from the tablet medications, which don't work. If I had a name, I would certainly talk to my Drs. about it
    If there's anyone who might help, I would be grateful.
