Diabetics are prone for repeated urinary tract infections. Best way to prevent them is to keep your sugar under good control.
Do regular light exercises/ walking along with healthy food intake and be under regular follow up with your doctor.
Your urine report shows urinary infection. Urine culture will show which organism is responsible for the infection
