Depends: A change in weather by itself won't cause her diabetes to be more out of control but if as a result of cooler weather and shorter days she is playing outside less and eating more, that could in part explain her higher blood glucose levels

I agree with what Dr. Kaplowitz has said. There is also a normal pattern of hormone production throughout the day that has a significant effect on blood sugar (cortisol and growth hormone peak in the am, for example) and with the time change this is briefly disrupted and the body may need several days or even a week or two to adjust and this may effect the sugars as part of the above.

Lowered function: While sexual potential can carry through into quite older age, the erectile capacity and ejacualate volume decrease with age. Some lose desire which is entirely psychological. Note the many products on the market for this and the destruction of endangered animals for this (rhino horns, bear gall bladder stones, etc.).

Normal!: It is not uncommon in some children. If the stool is formed , child is growing i would not worry about it. It is often from green leafy vegetables, coloring agents in the food or simply due to rapid transit from small intestine to large intestine where it normally is tuned brown.
