Diabetologist 's  Response

Any haziness in the X ray may indicate infection to the lung matter or the pleura.

History of cough is more in favour of infection of the lung.

It may be Pneumonia or Pulmonary TB.

So you may need to

1. Sputum examination.

2. Sputum culture and sensitivity.

3. Antibiotic based on the sensitivity report.

4. Consult a Pulmonologist.
