Normally in diabetics the elevated sugar give rise to bacterial infection and also it delays healing. So the first line is to control the diabetes and treat the infection. The report of your mother suggest that her diabetic profile is with in normal i.e well controlled. serum creatinine and urea is elevated indicating damage to the kidneys and pus cells indicates infection. As your diabetes is well controlled it will cure the infection faster.
