Blood disorder or diabetes ?

User Profile
I am concerned about a male friend of mine who has been diagnosed with diabetes and have seen a doctor and was given medications and e took them; but the pills were finish and i was told that he didnt go back to see a doctor. But i didnt know it was serious until i went there on Saturday 15/12/07 when i was told that he was passing blood through his nose, buttocks and penis. Has the diabetes gone bad or its something else?

Diabetes mellitus does not manifest with bleeding through the nose, anus and/or penis. Such bleeding could be due to some type of blood coagulation disorder. Your friend can see a blood disorder specialist, a hematology doctor, for diagnosis, treatment, and follow up options.
