A Review of the Role of Cigarette Smoking in the Diabetic Foot.

08:00 EDT 9th October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "A Review of the Role of Cigarette Smoking in the Diabetic Foot."

Diabetic foot ulceration has been a serious issue over the past decades in Asia, causing economic and social problems. Therefore, it is important to identify and reduce risk factors of diabetic foot. Cigarette smoking has been reported to be associated with diabetes and its macrovascular complications, but the relationship between smoking and diabetic foot ulcers is still unclear. In this review, we summarizes the effects of cigarette smoking on diabetic foot ulcers with respect to peripheral neuropathy, vascular alterations and wound healing. One underlying mechanism of these impacts may be the smoking induced oxidative stress inside the cells. At the end of this review, the current mainstream therapies for smoking cessation are also outlined. We think that it is urgent for all diabetic patients to quit smoking so as to reduce chances of developing foot ulcers and improve prognosis of diabetic foot ulcers.
