Living with diabetes means facing the choice of a healthy lifestyle every day.
Having diabetes means having a disease that often raises blood sugar levels in a worrying way.
Most of the food a person eats is turned into glucose (a kind of sugar) which the body’s cells can use for energy.
There are several types of diabetes.
Type 2 is the most common in adults and accounts for over 90% of all diabetes cases.
Fewer people have type 1 diabetes, which more often develops in children, adolescents, or young adults.
Smoking and diabetes are a bad combination. Regardless of the type of diabetes you have, smoking makes your diabetes harder to control.
If you have diabetes and smoke, you are more likely to have serious diabetes-related health problems. Smokers with diabetes have a higher risk of serious complications.
Little is known about the impact of combustion-free nicotine delivery sistem on T2DM patients who smoke. DIASMOKE (Assessing the impact of combustion free-nicotine delivery technologies in Diabetic Smokers) is an international, multicenter, open label randomized controlled study designed to determine wheter T2DM cigarette smokers switching to CF-NDS experience measurable improvement in cardiovascular risk parameters as a consequence of avoiding exposure to cigarette smoke toxicants.
This study aims to test the hypothesis that avoiding exposure to cigarette smoke toxicants may translate to measurable improvement in cardiovascular risk factors and functional parameters when type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients who smoke switch to using C-F NDS compared with T2DM patients who continue to smoke conventional tobacco products.
Your health will be monitored and monitored continuously.
