Brief Answer:
You can wait and watch.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question.
Noted your concern.

HbA1c of 6.5 denotes good blood sugar control.

There was respiratory infection in your case for which you have already received two different kind of respiratory antibiotics (Azithromycin and Moxifloxacin).

Also your symptoms have reduced significantly.
If there is a productive cough with sputum, get sputum examination done (Sputum for AFB & Gram stain).

If only dry cough then continue steam inhalation, Montek LC, some cough Lozenges and wait and watch.

If symptoms get aggravated, increasing cough, breathing difficulty or fever better to get evaluated.
In that case following investigations may be suggested-
- Complete blood count.
- ESR
- Chest xray needed to be compared with previous one.
- If required Throat swab.

Along with this good control of blood sugar level is needed.

Hope this helps you.
I will be happy to answer your follow up question if any.
Otherwise close the question and rate the answer.

Regards,
Dr. Abhay Mali.
