Well, here I am again, with another bug. My whole diabetes denial issue was brought out last month because I had a bought with pneumonia that wouldn't get better… took three weeks to clear up. Now here I am again with a really nasty cold. I feel like my head's going to implode and I'm coughing up a lung. My sugars fortunately have not been high, so I don't think I've got an infection of any kind. Thank goodness. Being new at this whole body diabetes management regimen, how do you manage a cold with your diabetes. I'm taking Alka Seltzer cold meds, because that works best for me.

thats what I take, it helps the most. I also bend the rules and mix up a little hot tea, whiskey, honey and lemon juice. That'll straighten you out A sauna or just getting all suited up and climbing on the treadmill is great too
