Question:

From Ohio, USA:

I know that a person with diabetes should not smoke, but I haven't found anything about second hand smoke and its effects on diabetes. Do you have any information for me?

Answer:

There is an extensive literature on passive smoking with regard to lung disease, so it would be surprising if there were no vascular risk to those with diabetes but I don't know of any proof.
