Health Quit was selected by the American Diabetes Association at the Health Tech showcase on November 5th-6th. We were humbled and excited about the selection. However, this was no surprise to us because of the higher mortality rate in smokers who are diabetic. In fact, smoking causes type 2 diabetes and about 30-40% of smokers develop type 2 diabetes.
People with diabetes who smoke are more likely than non-smokers to have insulin dosing issues. Smokers with diabetes have a higher risk of serious complications including:
heart and kidney disease, poor blood flow, retinopathy and peripheral neuropathy.
