Myth Four: Smoking Cigars can raise your blood sugar level.

 

For most people, this statement is of little consequence. But if you are a diabetic, it is a myth you have probably wondered about, and rightly so. How can smoking a cigar raise your blood sugar level after all? It just doesn’t seem to make sense.

 

Fact or Fiction: Unfortunately, this one is true. Cigars, and any form of tobacco, does indeed raise blood sugar levels. More specifically, nicotine is the culprit behind the increased sugars.

 

So if you are a diabetic, and you notice that you feel sick or light-headed after smoking, or can’t figure out why your glucose meter insists your sugars are higher than your eating habits suggest they should be, you need look no further.

 

Be sure to balance your cigars just as you do you diet and exercise.

 

Conclusion

 

That is all the time we have for this episode. I hope you enjoyed it. There will be a second part coming out shortly, tackling topics such as Winston Churchill, more myths surrounding Cuban cigars, and more.

 

As always, thanks for reading. See you next time!
