The Respiratory System's Function
The respiratory system's function is so automatic that we often don't take the time to appreciate it. However, when the respiratory system isn't working as it should because of a lung disease, infection or other issues, it can adversely affect the quality of life for the individual with the complications. Because the high blood glucose levels associated with diabetes has a direct effect on every system of the body, the respiratory system can often come under attack as a result of this chronic disease that affects almost 10 percent of the American population.

Diabetes & the Respiratory System

Individuals with diabetes have difficulty fighting off infections because of their compromised immune systems. This puts them at a greater vulnerability for lung infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis. Many diabetics also suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Furthermore, diabetes is noted as the cause of an overall, general decline in respiratory function: the rate, according to the National Institute of Health, can be two to three times faster than in normal, non-smoking individuals.
