Diabetologist 's  Response
Your father is having urine infection. He is also passing ketones in his urine which points towards either diabetic ketoacidosis (very high sugar levels ) or prolonged fasting. Consult a urologist and a nephrologist who may order a few tests like urine for culture & sensitivity, ultrasonography of abdomen & KUB-Prostate and S.PSA (prostate specific antigen)and prescribe antibiotics depending on urine culture & sensitivity results. He should also see the endocrinologist to maintain the blood sugar levels within the target range.
Best regards
