What type of cold? Head? Chest? Nasal? Why don't you post this question in the daily chat where more people, with more experience, might see it?

Ask your pharmacist for a cold medicine appropriate for DIABETICS. It will likely be sugar free or using some sugar substitute. I had a cold and was able to get a cough syrup that was sugarfree.

You can also find cold drops that are sugar free for diabetics. Some will even have a nutrition panel with carb count.

I have always taken extra vitamin c, which will help with the cold, just make sure its not the flavoured chew kind- they have sugar (found out the hard way). I rarely get sick even when everyone else on the planet seems to have a cold, drink lots of water, warm tea, gargle with salt, I used to use an echinnecia (sp?) spray not sure if that would be ok, like I said I dont really get sick anymore
