    Diabetes really doesn't leave any part of the body alone, and he's not getting any younger. We know nothing of his diet or activity level, 2 extremely important factors. You can't just go online and ask about specific drugs and symptoms without a doctor seeing him in person to evaluate all of him. We don't even know what tests he's had for this.
    Try another specialist, a respiratory one.
