Brief Answer:
Needs work up and management

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern, issues with urination and thirst and problems in visual acuity should be evaluated for metabolic disordered like diabetes mellitus. At age of 49 urinary symptoms should be considered for prostate check as well and let the doctors sort it out. Just go to your doctor, let them run complete metabolic profile analysis, urine routine exam, prostate check and i am sure we will know the culprit cause.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
