The pus cells-6-8/hpf, indicates infection of your urinary tract which needs to be treated with antibiotics prescribed by your physician.The other indices are Ok.But I would suggest you to consult with your doctor and do a Spot albumin/creatinine test to find out your kidney function, as diabetics are prone for kidney damage and need to do yearly test for assessing kidney function.
