Most likely high blood sugar levels.

This is what sent me to the doctor the day they told me I was diabetic.

I went in thinking I was starting to get a urinary tract infection but left with the big D. After a couple days the sensation was gone and hasn't returned.

The cause? Bacterias, viruses, fungi. Your friend needs to see a doctor to determine the exact cause and required treatment. Diabetics that do not have good control of their BG are more susceptible to getting UTIs.

It is against forum rules to seek or give medical advice. So before we step into that territory.....This thread is closed.
