1.high fever: is with chills or rigor
2.fever is continous or intermittent
3.any associated urinary symptoms
4.any h/o travelling to other country/state he is diabetic and heart patient:so fever will act as a stress which will increase his blood sugar level as well as increase the metabolic rate which will cause the heart to work take him to your doctor and reduce the temperature

HI!!!Since your father is in the age where he is susceptable to any kind of infection like dengue,malaria, very important that u do some blood tests for the same.Dengue serology should be done especially on the 7the day of fever..similarly, test for typhoid fever should be done after the 10th day of fever.....else inspite of having the symptoms...the test will come negative!!!!

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

He needs to get evaluated immediately.High temperature denotes severe fever which could be due to viral illness , Respiratory tract infection , malaria or typhoid or Urinary tract infection.Physicial examination can narrow down the diagnosis to any of the above.He need blood tests to rule out malaria and typhoid.
I advise you to visit your Physician and get the above tests done as early as possible.If you need any further help , feel free to ask me.

Take care
