Smoking

We all know smoking is hazardous to our health. However, if you have diabetes, you’re already at an increased risk of developing heart and kidney problems. Mixing smoking and diabetes will also increase your chances of:

  • high blood pressure
  • problems with your feet and eyesight
  • teeth and gum problems

If this doesn’t put you off, check out other information on smoking and diabetes. Ask yourself … is it worth it? If you already smoke, speak to your doctor about ways of quitting or contact Quitline on 137 848.
