Diabetes with other complications

Patient

Q: Hi, my dad has a diabetes and he is suffering from tuberculosis, UTI, he has a fever, and his saliva has some mixture of blood on it. It's been almost three weeks from now since he has been experiencing fever, cough and colds and etc. According to his CBC results his WBC are 20,000. He has been waiting for his laboratory results which will be released after 5 days. He's also been injecting insulin on his tummy, and other parts of his body. He's really thin now. While waiting for the result, what other diagnosis can you give or recommend to my dad, Doc. :( Thank you and God bless!
