Your Dad needs to see a doctor. This sounds like uncontrolled diabetes and it's complications (gastro and circulatory problems). If that is the problem and he continues to not take meds or take care of himself he may get organ failure (heart, eyes, kidneys) or lose limbs.

Sorry I can't be more positive, but it sounds like he is in a dangerous situation.
