I have this for a while. Towards the end, urine looks pretty condensed, and white. I could see the end part being mixed and making the waters 'cloudy". Also, even if I "milk" my penis, I get a 'tingly' sensation right after I pee. And this happens in the afternoon peeing, not morning or nite.
I have diabetes in my family. My diagnosis last year was 'inconclusive'. Any word or advice appreciated.

Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.

You want to know the cause of the symptoms that you experience.

Urinary tract infections are characterized with a frequent need to urinate, itching or a discomfort in the genital area, changes in the appearance of the urine (milky or cloudy urine), pain in the lower abdomen or pain in the back (the flanks), etc. Diabetes melitus is one of the conditions that contribute to the appearance of the urinary tract infections. The glucose that is released with the urine is a perfect condition for the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

According to the data that you described, it seems likely that you may be experiencing a urinary tract infection or a kind of sexually transmitted disease. You may consider having a bacterial culture from a urine sample with an antibiogram to rule out urinary tract infection. You also may need to have a blood test to measure the level of the glucose in your blood to rule out possible diabetes melitus.

Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
