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