Tobacco is an unhealthy habit & addiction. It causes the blood vessels to constrict. Also in diabetics, the blood has an increased tendency to clot as the blood is slightly thicker due to increase in the concentration of clotting factors. So a diabetic person with a tobacco habit is at an increased risk to develop clots in heart vessels or brain vessels causing either a heart attack or a stroke or gangrene if the peripheral vessels develop a clot & are blocked. hence quit your tobacco as early as possible.

What are the precautions to be taken for a diabetic patient to cure diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition caused by either total absence of insulin (type 1 DM) or either insufficient or inefficient insulin (type 2 DM). While type 1 generally occurs at a much younger age, type 2 can occur at any age and lifestyle is one of the major governing factor. DM manifests when more than 70% of the pancreatic functions are lost. (pancreas are responsible for producing insulin.) it can hence be controlled by correcting one's lifestyle. But can never be completely cured.

Dear lybrate-user, diabetes is a multi factorial disorder. That means that more than one factor is responsible for developing diabetes. Many people have history of diabetes in parents or siblings but not all of them develop diabetes. Genes when combine with mental stress, sedentary lifestyle, improper diet, smoking and alcohol addiction lead to diabetes. Now prevention of diabetes is by preventing each factor. Exercise regularly, meditate as and when possible, have balanced healthy diet and avoid smoking and alcohol! prevention is better as there's no cure for diabetes till date! hope this helps you!
