Strongly recommend you consult your Dr for appropriate management, as bleeding can become very serious.
Tight management of your diabetes to control blood sugar levels will be very important and also to preserve your 1 remaining kidney, which means medications and sticking with your diet.   How is your blood sugar control? A1C?

Please see your Dr.  Let us know how you go.

Yes, go to the doctor. Have you ever had a colonoscopy. I had two of them. I do bleed from my rectum due to chronic constipation. I do have hemorrhoids though.
