From Jacksonville, Florida, USA:

After my mother takes her insulin shot, she has a hard coughing spell which can last for some time. My daughter told me a fellow student friend who has diabetes said this could be caused from her insulin not being regulated as it should.


I have never heard of this, and there's no good reason I can see to link coughing to the insulin shot.


[Editor's comment: Maybe she is holding her breath when she gives the injection and aspirates something while she is doing it? SS]
