How Can I Help My Diabetic Son Who Is Suffering With Frequent Urine Infection And Extreme Thirst?

age 50, my son, schizoaffective, diagnosed 10 yrs ago diabetes and after yrs of intermittent noncompliance now finally stabilized thanks to shelter home life. He is not a good informant re: symptoms. He visits me once a month, 5-plus days at a time. We never discuss his meds or his health. I know he s on injections of insulin I have concerns (due to ignorance) about his ongoing extreme thirst and extreme urine frequency. I don t know if those two symptoms are a precursor to a worsening of condition or further organ problems. Any information you offer will certainly help with my knowing what possible expectations lie ahead and my ability to assist him if needed. Thank you
