Welcome to DF, Amit . . . nice to meet you.

Without more information, it's hard to say what are the best options for your mother. Has she seen a doctor for either of these ailments? Is she on any medicine or insulin for her diabetes? What kind of diet does she eat now? Is she able to exercise?

If her sugar level is running over 300 very often, her Lupisulin and Zoryl dosages need to be adjusted - they are not keeping her within a safe range (which should be about 90-140 mg/dl). Does her diet contain other carbs - possibly wheat products like breads? That is a big offender for many diabetics.

Is her cough diagnosed as actual Pertussis? Does she have asthma or other respiratory illnesses?

The high blood sugar can hinder the healing process of the other ailments, just the same as it can hinder the healing of wounds. Whatever it takes to get her blood sugar down is going to help all the other things too.

Keep us posted . . .

Welcome Admit, you are in the right place for answers.

You love your mother very much to want to help her.

What is your mother's diet? That is important to getting her blood sugar down. You have to be careful with a diet that involves someone who is sick. Sometimes the diet can raise the blood sugar. Check all labels and be sure to give her the serving size that is on the label.

Have you tried Vick's vapo rub for your mother? It comes in a jar. I have some handy. When I have a cold on cough, I rub it on underneath my neck when I go to bed. Also, a humidifor (sp?) might help.

Whooping cough is caused by a virus and will go away in its own time. When my father had it, he coughed for 6 months.

Pertussis is going around. We are to have vaccinations every 5 years. I have not had my shots since I was a child. My son and I are going to get our shots so we do not get it.

Welcome to Diabetes Forum! I am sorry to hear that your Mother is not feeling well. I think that the whooping cough will have to run its course. There are strong cough medications available that contain codeine, but you need a prescription for it in the USA. Maybe this would help to calm the cough down. Has any doctor suggested a breathing treatment with a nebulizer? A persistent cough can really be a nuisance and make you very weak. Come and visit us often!

Shanny, I just found out from the doctor's office that it is needed every 10 years. This is in California. It was on the news!! Whooping cough (pertussis) is going around here.

I am waiting to hear from my doctor when my husband and I can get a shot.

I posted my source which is Johns Hopkins; that's all. And I'm aware of the outbreak in California - I have kids living in the Bay area.

I hope none of your family or my family come down with it. I thought that once we had our shots, we were good for life. I was wrong.

I appreciate your quote, that is normally the fact.

I have never had a vaccination for it. My immunity comes from having already had it. My mom & I both had it in the winter of 1945. I was nine months old. Prob'ly lucky I lived to tell about it.

Amit, hullo. My house-partner has diabetes 2, is very much a 'male', refused to eat healthily... and is paying the price now.
But we women are smarter. I have successfully 'managed' my ms for 18 years now, and despite many lesions am relatively healthy!
I ascribe my wellness to what I do, and much of what I do is documented under The Wellness Secret.
This may seem like a bid for a buy, or a scam. I assure you that it isn't - I am a real person with a real 'condition', and I Really practise The Wellness Secret.
It's worth a try, hmmm?

Hi Amit, when whooping cough gets that bad, go to the ER, STAT, do not delay. A person can die from it, if it is not treated.

I do not believe whooping cough has anything to do with diabetes. Anymore than the flu or any other winter illness.

I live in an area where whooping cough has become prevalent. Most everyone, including me, has had the vaccine for whooping cough. I have also had the flu shot.

I know a lot of people do not believe in getting the shots. I am not trying to tell others what to do. It is up to each individual.

Em, please do not say that women are smarter than men. I know some men who are keeping their diabetes under strict control. You are discriminating.

Hi Em. With your personal experience of success with The Wellness Secret, I'm sure you want to share it right here and now with all of us! How wonderful. I'm really looking forward to the post in which you share the mysterious good news.

To the original poster Amit: If your Mother's blood sugar is running high, it will be more difficult for her to heal from any infection. Whatever can be done to help her get her blood sugar as close to a non-diabetic range as possible will help.

Best,
Jen
