Burning with frequent urine urge points towards UTI. It is important to mention that diabetics have a much higher risk of getting UTIs owing to many factors . I can explain if you want. Have your urine tested for an infection. I would recommend you to take plenty of fluids, cranberry juice to relieve the burning and a course of antibiotics.
