    Does anyone know of any vitamins I could take to try and boost my immune system. It's unbelievable how poorly I get from simple colds. Soon as anything comes I go down so poorly, the hospital are a bit useless too!

    When you get a cold, try taking two echinacia tablets three times a day. That should clear it up quickly.

    Absolutely agree about Echinacea. I've been taking them over winter months and not one cold (touch wood:) )

    Zinc? It seems to be common with zinc deficiency in diabetes, and one sign is low immune system. Poor wound healing and lethargy are other signs.

    I take Zinc, vitamin B complex and possibly potassium and magnesium. Depends if you have a deficiency or not, have you had an electrolyte test?
