Research shows that smokers are at an increased risk of type-2 diabetes. People with diabetes who smoke will have trouble controlling their diabetes.
Smokers with diabetes have higher risks for serious complications, including:
- Heart and kidney disease
- Poor blood flow (which can lead to infections, ulcers,
- and amputation of toes, feet or legs)
- Retinopathy (an eye disease that can cause blindness)
Tobacco use and diabetes make a deadly combination. Quitting tobacco will help lower your risk of serious diabetes health complications.
