Thanks for feedback .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for feedback.

You have not mentioned whether your diabetes is under control or not.

The urgency that you have could be mostly due to Over Active Bladder Syndrome with uncontrolled diabetes.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical and Digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done under his guidance to rule out Enlarged Prostate which is very common at this age.
1) Blood Sugar levels on empty stomach and two hours after lunch to see status of your diabetes.
2) Ultrasound Scanning of abdomen and pelvis with specific mention of post void residual urine

As regards Urgency it can be controlled with medication like Darifenacin once daily.

Further treatment will depend upon the results of these tests and final diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
