Thank you for posting a query.

The nicorette gum contains nicotine mainly. It is present as resin.

It would be better to avoid nicorette before blood test as it may alter the test report.

So, avoid nicorette gum while fasting prior to blood tests for physical.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
