Uncontrolled Diabetis

I am a diabetic since last 8 years and I am on Novomix 30 (25 units in two divided dosage) and Diamicron xr Mex 500 Tablets (Twice daily). Even after proper diet the sugar levels remain high. My HBA1C is around 9. However there are no other complications like retinopathy or neuropathy, etc. Recently I am unable to hold an erection for long time. Needed advice on how can I control my sugar levels with proper diet and any other precautions to be taken.
