Diabetic cold &  flu medicine

My father is a diabetic 2. Every other month he gets flu/cold. Which is strange as he almost never got sick in the past. Would just like to know what medicine (for cold &  flu) can be taken by diabetics? Waiting for your email if possible?

Regards

Your father can use Panado and Benylin cough syrup for diabetics. Bedrest is very important. The flu injection can be of assistance. Please ensure that his diabetes is well controlled.
