Hi doctor, My father who is 87 years old is a bp as well as diabetic. Presently he is down with very high fever for the past 4 days, and is not able to urinate propoerly. His recent blood culture report shows protein and puss cells in the urine, which are out of range. Currently he is antibiaotics and is under the supervision of a physician. How should we go about it as he is feeling weaker by each day. Thanks

Since he is a diabetic and having severe urine infection along with fever,he should be on intravenous fluids along with injectable insulin for control of his diabetes,instead of oral anti diabetics.
Look for his kidney function tests.
Your doctor must definitely be giving antibiotics after a proper culture report.
Have trust on your doctor,as he would definitely be treating your father with utmost care.
