Blood sugar and Cigars
#1
Has everyone here heard this?

I have seen this type of info on several Cigar websites.


There is a strong connection between nicotine and blood sugar. Smoking results in the inhibition of insulin secretion and increased glycogen processing.

In other words, there is more glucose (sugar) in your blood when you smoke.

And if you have blood sugar problems you should never smoke on an empty stomach.

I tend to smoke stronger cigars & I try to never smoke on an empty stomach, but if that happens & I get hit by that strong cigar, drinking or eating something sugary tends to help.

From what I understand the stronger cigar, the more the nicotine.

I've always heard that one cigar can have as much nicotine as a whole pack of cigarettes. We are just exposed to a lot less of that, as we don't inhale. But there is still some nicotine absorbed through the tongue and the insides of your mouth. I never knew of any issues regarding blood sugar and nicotine, but I've never really looked into that either. Interesting to know. Maybe I have blood sugar problems, as pretty much all cigars give me a case of the head spins.

cigars have nicotine. as much as a pack of cigarettes. But this is misleading (like tea having more caffeine than coffee). You absorb much much less nicotine in an average cigar than in a pack of cigarettes. You get just a little more than 1 or 2 cigarettes-if that (because cigarettes are laced with chemicals designed to help you absorb it more and you inhale them-your tongue is simply not a good place to absorb nicotine).
But, I know NOTHING about blood sugar and smoking.
Having said that... there is so much negative hype surrounding smoking I doubt so much of what the anti-smoking Nazis say these days. I would tend to dispute this sugar thing too. How can something that contain no sugar increase your blood sugar? It makes no sense to me but I know nothing on the subject.
