Question: I'm a 60-year-old woman, and I've had type 1 diabetes for 36 years. My question is rather personal: I love my husband, but find that lately I've been avoiding having intimate relations because, frankly, it's uncomfortable and sometimes painful. I want us to continue having a healthy sexual relationship. Is this problem caused by my diabetes?
