How does tobacco impact chronic conditions?

Diabetes and Tobacco

Those who smoke are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, and it makes a core component of controlling the condition - managing insulin - exponentially more challenging. Additional comorbidities and diabetic complications can develop as a result. 

Insulin sensitivity improves when one with diabetes or prediabetes quits tobacco, making blood sugar much easier to manage.

Cardiovascular Disease and Tobacco

Tobacco use is casually related to all forms of cardiovascular disease. So much so that even less than 5 cigarettes per day can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Those who smoke cigarettes aren’t the only ones affected — secondhand smoke accounts for a 20-30% increased risk of stroke. 

When quitting smoking, the risk of a major coronary event is reduced by more than 50% in as little as 1-3 years.

Musculoskeletal and Tobacco

Tobacco reduces the blood supply to the bones and body tissue. It also decreases calcium absorption, which leads to an increased risk of bone fractures. Tobacco use can also impact tissue health and lead to increased lower back pain, sprains, fractures, and more. 

Quitting tobacco allows the body to regain some normal healthy functions and reverses many musculoskeletal risks.

Mental Health and Tobacco

Of those who use tobacco, 35% have a behavioral health-related disorder. Those who vape experience 2X the risk of depression than those who do not. Additionally, tobacco use increases feelings of anxiety and tension. 

Successfully quitting tobacco can reduce depression, anxiety, and stress, while at the same time enhancing one’s mood and quality of life.
