Just curious. concerning cigars

Are swisher sweets and cigars bad for diabetics? Do they raise ur blood sugar?

No. Smoking is pretty bad for you though. But, this is coming from someone who smokes a pack a day.


well from what I've been told over the yrs is that smoking does raise your bs by 1 or 2 points, so I was told to test before I smoke to get a "true" reading. Now I don't smoke cigars or swessher sweets but they all contain tobacco so may be they are the same and I would just test before and then test afterwards to see if it does raise your bs.

Don't think so.  I smoked Optimo peach for a year or more and didn't notice any effect on BG's.
