Health Tip: Diabetes and Smoking

Posted on: January 28, 2009

If you’re a diabetic who has smoked, no matter how long, you can improve your health by quitting. The American Diabetes Association offers this list of potential dangers for diabetics who smoke:

  • Smoking decreases oxygen in the tissues, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
  • Smoking increases cholesterol and blood pressure, which raises your risk of heart attack.
  • Smoking constricts and damages blood vessels, which can make foot ulcers worse.
  • Smoking increases your risk of damage to the nerves and kidneys.
  • Smoking increases your risk of colds and other respiratory illnesses.
  • Smoking increases blood sugar levels.
  • Smoking triples your risk of death from cardiovascular disease, compared to diabetics who don’t smoke.
