I'm starting to notice that my 7yo DD is coughing after having chocolate - especially in liquid form (chocolate milk, hot chocolate). Allergy maybe? Or could it be causing some heartburn that the heartburn would be making her cough? We've been having these off & on coughing issues and we know we need to see an allergist & pulmonologist for other issues but wondering if this may be part of the problem. Since it's Saturday and not an emergency, calling someone isn't an option.Answer Question
Coughing is also a sign of Diabetes.

My Best friend/next door neighbor when I grew up had a hacking cough for over a year. We were in elementary school so I'm not sure how old we were. Finally they took blood. This was in the early '70's so Dr.'s almost never ordered blood work especially for kids. Anyway, she tested positive for diabetes. Probably hereditary since her uncle had it very bad. The poor girl ended up on insulin shots her whole life. Just a heads up since you never know. Better safe than sorry. GL!
