Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Jul 07, 2010
Dr Rishi Shukla, Endocrinologist, Regecy Hospital, Kanpur, tells us whether smoking is related to diabetes or not. Diabetes is a fast-spreading disease in the developing countries that affects at least one in 4 persons. With smoking also being a blazing indestructible activity, knowing whether there is any link between smoking and diabetes is critical. The link between diabetes and smoking is rather miniscule for the fact that smoking does not cause diabetes. Diabetics, Dr Rishi says, are 3-4 times at the risk of acquiring brain problems, heart problems etc, which are enhanced by smoking. Therefore, smoking increases the chances of heart attacks in people with diabetes.
