The absence of those is somewhat reassuring, but not enough to say there is nothing to be concerned about. With your history of dm it would be best for you to see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Hi, been vaccinated against pneumonia, and am diabetic. Shaking chill last week, and seemed to recover. But now have a rasping cough, and little brea?
Lots of options: Pna is aggressive and deadly, hence the vaccine. Numerous "flu" / "cold" viruses are prevalent during the fall/winter, and you likely found one of those to get a lower resp tract infxn, like bronchitis. Usually symptom tx works (steam vaporizer--if safe to use by your bed), Mucinex (guaifenesin) to thin secretions, +/- albuterol. See your dr for eval & meds (not likely abx). ...Read more
