Smoking and Diabetes
Smoking increases your risk of getting Type 2 diabetes.
The more you smoke, the more chance you have of getting diabetes (DYE-uh-BEEteez). If you smoke 16 to 25 cigarettes a day, your risk for Type 2 diabetes is 3 times greater than a non-smoker’s risk. When you quit smoking, your risk decreases during the years that follow.
