*Sniff*
 
Does anyone else find that they pick up colds and flu so much more often? I had the flu (the real one) a month ago and now have a cold. Driving me nuts. Any solutions about what I can do to prevent it?

I had a time when I was getting upper respiratory infections on a regular basis. In each case they developed into major infections that required heavy antibiotics. I thought it was due to me being a diabetic. After doing lots of my own research, I found out that Januvia has a side effect that it can lead to upper respiratory infections. I immediately got off of it...! Following that, these infections stopped....and that was 7 years ago! I am still diabetic, so the drug was the cause, not being diabetic. By the way, I have not had an infection since I got off of that drug...!

Good Luck

Getting plenty of vitamin C and zinc? Probiotics?
