Diabetes' Effects on the Pulmonary System
With the effects that diabetes has on many systems throughout the body, diabetics often find themselves with decreased lung functions. The American Diabetes Association cites studies showing that those with Type 1 diabetes may have decreased lung elasticity, decreased CO transfer capacity and decreased pulmonary capillary blood volume. Additionally, the U.S. National Institutes of Health has noted that chronic hyperglycemia causes fibrous tissue formation in the chest wall as well as a decrease in muscle strength. These factors affect the overall quality of the breaths that a diabetic can take.
