Nephrologist 's  Response
hi, your father has persistent (pyuria) pus in urine associated with fever , suggests that he has recurrent urinary tract infections. Possibilities are- 1) he has persistent ureteric obstruction / reflux secondary to tuberculosis. since he is diabetic , makes him prone to urinary tract infection. 2) he has bladder pathology secondary to tuberculosis or even longstanding diabetes. 3) his tuberculosis is resistant to treatment.
What you need to do is to consult a urologist who can evaluate any urinary tract pathology, as well a physician who can evaluate his tuberculosis and diabetes .
