Abstract [en]

Smoking is a serious risk factor for cardiovasculardisease, retinopathy, and nephropathy in patientswith diabetes. Furthermore, epidemiological studieshave shown that heavy smokers run an increasedprospective risk of developing type 2 diabetes,probably due both to the fact that smoking is a mar-ker for an unhealthy lifestyle and that smoking vianicotine may deteriorate glucose metabolism bynegatively influencing insulin sensitivity. In Swe-den, data from the National Diabetes Register(NDR) has shown that the prevalence of smoking intype 2 diabetes patients followed in primary healthcare is almost as high as in the non-diabetic popu-lation, at least in middle-aged subjects (about 20%).This alarming situation must be dealt with by usingnew and effective methods to promote anti-smo-king. If support by group sessions can be organisedfor patients with type 2 diabetes who are smokers,in combination with pharmacological approaches(nicotine, bupropion) it is hoped that the rate ofsmoking cessation can substantially increase. Suchprojects are currently under-way within the prima-ry health care in southern Sweden.
