I have Peripheral Vascular Disease so I quit smoking and now chew up to 6 pieces of Nicorette gum daily - Will this possibly worsen my condition?
Yes, using Nicorette (nicotine) mY worsen peripheral vascular disease. Although it is a good alternative to smoking, because you don't inhale toxic products into your lungs, it can cause side effects attributed to systemic nicotine.
Nicotine may cause coronary artery vasoconstriction, therefore may worsen PVD.
