Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear that "Jim" has diabetes and a cold. Fortunately, his blood sugar level is not too high and not contributing to his viral cold. May I suggest you continue to give him his diabetic medication which I will assume is Metformin. Also, you can continue to give him the "cold" tablets to help with cough, runny nose, etc. May I suggest you increase his fluids, give Ibuprofen or Aleve for aches and or fever and additional rest. The cold needs to run its course, usually 5-7 days. If however, his symptoms persist for more than 7 days, a visit to his doctor is recommended.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
