I have gone through your mother's reports. The cause for the cough has little to do with her diabetes. It seems from your Pulmonary function tests report that you mother has what is known as a Restrictive lung disease. I would advice you to get done a simple Chest X XXXXXXX first. Further investigations would include an HRCT of Chest for your mother. I would also advice a PFT with DLCO if it is available at your place. This would help us accurately locate the cause of her cough.

With Warm regards

I am not from Delhi so difficult for me to comment on a hospital in Delhi. Any multispeciality hospital with a Pulmonologist can help
