Forman and his team found that women who smoke more than two packs a day have the highest likelihood of developing diabetes, and risk of diabetes will be higher in women who are exposed to smoke (passive smoking).
“Although the participants were women but there is no reason that this research does not apply to men, because the same risk factors for diabetes for both sexes,” says Forman.
Meanwhile, Nathan said that is not known with certainty what the relationship between diabetes and smoking, but there is the possibility of inflammation meainkan role in both these conditions. The results of this study suggest a link with one another.
