The high glucose levels of diabetes can lead to a whole host of other issues. Because of the immune-affecting problems that it can cause, diabetes can affect many other systems like renal systems, cardiovascular systems, circulatory systems, urinary systems and pulmonary systems. Many of those with diabetes have respiratory issues due to the decreased lung capacities, increased fibrous tissues, decreased respiratory strength and reduced antioxidant capacity of the lungs.
Pulmonary Issues & Diabetes
In addition to other complications like peripheral neuropathy, eye problems, skin problems and reduced immune system, many individuals who are living with diabetes experience difficulties with their pulmonary systems. This can make it difficult to breath normally. Diabetes can contribute to the development of chronic and bacterial lung disorders like pneumonia, chronic pulmonary disease (COPD) and tuberculosis.
The Purpose of Nebulizers
Many pulmonary conditions require the use of nebulizers to help deliver the necessary medications to the lungs for more immediate, effective absorption. Nebulizers employ oxygen, ultrasonic power or compressed air to deliver medical solutions such as albuterol sulfate and Ipratropium Bromide to relieve the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Nebulizers essentially turn the medications into an aerosol mist that can be breathed through a mouthpiece, directly into the lungs for the most effective absorption.
