Abstract

A cross-sectional study using the US national 2009 Behavioral-Risk-Factor-Surveillance-System data (n=425,846) demonstrates that diabetes prevalence was significantly increased after age 35 in ever smokers, irrespective of gender. Diabetes prevalence was significantly increased in white or Hispanic ever smokers after age 25, and in black ever smokers after age 35.
