Thanks for the query.

In view of symptoms and his diabetic status, there are two possibilities.It is either obstructed kidney stone or urine might be casts, dissolved stones with may be pus cells.

He needs urine analysis and after that if needed a course of antibiotics.A sonography of urinary system can also be undertaken for kidney stone.

In my view he needs to see doctor and get investigations done.

Hope this answers your question.Please ask if there are doubts.
