Hi Thanks for posting your query.
Diabetes and fever is not related though diabetes increases the risk of having infection.
Fever most of the time indicates an infection somewhere in the body. There has to be some infection somewhere in the body just that your doctors couldn't find out what.
Kindly post all the reports of test done till now so that I can go through them and let you know what else needs to be tested.
I find this answer helpful
