Hi, I have been a chain smoker for last ten years. Recently I am diagnosed with high blood sugar. I am wondering, is it anyway linked to my smoking habit or do I have to quit smoking?

Smoking certainly increases your risk of type 2 diabetes and the risk of various diabetes complications, including:
Reduced blood flow in the legs and feet, which can lead to infections, ulcers and possible removal of a body part by surgery (amputation)
Eye disease, which can lead to blindness
Talk to your doctor about ways to help you stop smoking or using other types of tobacco.
