Sharon, congrats on making the effort. I really don't know much about smoking and blood sugar, but I know that smoking is not good to our bodies. Good luck on your journey!
Congrats! I quit smoking in November after a 30 year habit! Its rough...I know...and so does everyone that had to put up with my crabby attitude for a couple of months. You can do it! I know one of the problems with smoking and diabetes is that it increases your risk of heart disease even more than just having diabetes alone does. I used to not even really think of that...but now that I have a 46 year old heart I do consider it greatly
several studies have proven that nicotine indeed raises blood glucose. One study concluded that it raised BG levels MORE in diabetics than normal individuals.
