Hello, You are a known Diabetic on insulin.

Fever and cough for long duration and responding to regular medication in a diabetic is a cause for concern. X-ray is also showing shadows. It may be that your having lung infection for which you are not taking appropriate antibiotic. Sputum culture and sensitivity is required.

Tuberculosis is also a possibility and has to be ruled out.
