From Oklahoma, USA:

Are diabetics usually more sterile than non-diabetics?


Patients who have diabetes are not necessarily more sterile than those without diabetes. Those with a larger burden of disease and complications may have more difficulty with conception. The difficulty is secondary to the other complications that occur.
