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.
