Welcome to XXXXXXX
As diabetes is under control, urinary disorders need to be ruled out.
Bloods usually do not reveal anything significant.

The evaluation includes---

1. Urine analysis.
2. Urine culture to check for infection.
3. Ultrasound scan to look for stones.
If all these are ruled out, treatment for OVERACTIVE BLADDER is needed and that will solve the issue.

Weakness/ fatigue may be due to muscle and nerve problems related to diabetes. Only strict diabetic control and lifestyle changes are necessary.
