General & Family Physician 's  Response
It is a known fact that diabetic patients  are at higher risk for various infections than nondiabetic patients. 
Besides generalized impairments of immunity, other nonimmunologic, anatomically specific factors may contribute to an increased infection risk. Macrovascular  disease and microvascular dysfunction may result in compromised local circulation leading to delayed response to infection and impaired wound healing.
Unawareness of lower extremity trauma due to sensory  neuropathy may result in inadequate attention to minor wounds and subsequent increased infection risk.
 Incomplete bladder emptying due to autonomic neuropathy permits urinary colonization by microorganisms and high glucose concentration in the urine promotes the unhindered growth of bacteria resulting in various types of genito- urinary tract infections.
Treatment lies in ....
....Adequate and meticulous control of blood sugar levels with injectable insulins.
....Proper anti biotic therapy,after culture and sensitivity report,for proper amount of time.
....In case of genitiourinary tract infection,prolonged anti biotic therapy.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Anybody may get infection - diabetics are more prone due to several factors..
But... 'Abscess in the back, jaundice, kidney infection' - the description sounds rather serious.. he is probably having septicaemia? Or going for multiple organ failure?
Discuss with treating doctor

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
