    Diet Soda and Lower Blood Sugar

    My sugar has been getting out of control and I have been trying to make better food choices but nothing was working. I was even skipping meals trying to get my sugar down and that was not working! I did some online searches to find "natural ways" to lower blood sugar. I found a few sites that said "diet soda" can raise your BG and make you have a high A1C test! I stopped drinking diet soda and for the last 2-3 weeks my sugar has been awesome. I have lost 8 pounds have gone from sugar levels of 230-313 to 73-184. Has anyone ever heard about diet soda and how it can effect your BG's? Is this crazy or maybe something else going on with me??

    I do drink diet soda and it has never affected my bgs or my weight. Some feel diet soda and artificial sweetners may make you crave other carbs. I don't find that to be true. I am glad you are seeing lower bgs and lower weight. With diabetes we all are different and we do what works.
