Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a diabetic. Does chewing nicotine gum will increase sugar level? Does stress in the heart increase the sugar level?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your post. Nicotine chewing gum causes dental issues and sometimes hair loss and flushing. However, it does not increase blood sugar. So, you can take that it is 1000 times better to take nicotine chewing gum than cigarette especially once you have diabetes.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Does nicotine gum cause heart disease?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No, absolutely not. It does not cause any heart problem except may increase heart rate.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
