Hello, Welcome!
In a diabetic, even if controlled, fever with chronic cough requiring hospital admissions has a number of differential diagnoses; asthma & pulmonary TB must Ist be ruled out. Blood eosinophilia for allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, foreign body, chronic laryngotracheitis are other possibilities. You have to see also HbA1c to see strict glycemia control. I think a Pulmonologist opinion is a must. Good luck.

your blood sugar is under control with the medicines.
You have to improve your immunity level by doing yoga and breathing exercises and by taking anti-oxidants and multi vitamins.
but before doing all this you must consult a chest physician for a complete cure.
