In brief: Hard to tell

Although, chewing gum in and of itself may not be harmful to your health, there are a few considerations you want to keep in mind.
Chewing gum stimulates stomach acid production, so people with gerd (reflux) may potentially feel worse when their stomachs get excessive acid and "spill" it in the esophagus. If a gum has sugar in it, it may be bad for the chewer's teeth and people with diabetes.
