checked my reactions by suspending all diabetic medications, the result was that my blood sugar would rise at a rate of 10 mg/dl or more per hour without diabetic medications but during drinking Coke Zero.

so it may have been that i used too much Glyburide in trying to neutralize the 1.5 IU insulin immunity that i have. in other words, the first 3 IU of Novolog does nothing. to overcome this i have to inject at least 30 IU per day of Humulin N or Levemir.

i have been experimenting with using my old Glyburide instead of basal insulin to overcome this insulin immunity.

Just Joking, but maybe not. this my "disclaimer"

This has been my suspicion all along, that there are other factors influencing the bg, but the artificial sweetener gets the blame. I know we are all different, but I can't see an artificial sweetener spiking some and not others.

I thought the OP was about a sweet taste in the mouth raising INSULIN not BGs?

I'm confused every time this issue comes up. If it were true that artificial sweeteners triggered an insulin response (which it would appear it isn't in any case), why would that be a bad thing? I'm all for minimizing insulin (along with glucose), but if an AS - which clearly contributes nothing to glucose - were to trigger a minor insulin response wouldn't that just IMPROVE the serum glucose numbers that we all rely on?

Anyway, I far prefer stevia and recently found the KAL brand which I think has done the best job of extracting the sweetener some kind of way which has no strange after-taste as long as you don't use it to excess. No weird chemicals as "filler" just the real, natural product. Can't argue with that.

Just a question, if artificial sweetners raise insulin levels I assume this hypotheses can be tested by drinking a glas of water sweetened by artificials means. If this causes my insulin to rise then surely my BG must take a serious drop?

Diet soda is my last vice really, and I'm not giving it up until I know for sure it's going to take 20 years off my life or give me horrible brain cancer.

Everything these days is going to kill us... I eat the best I can, even buying grass fed beef, wild caught fish, organic chicken, local farm fresh eggs... but I need my diet soda. I've tried for years and years to break the habit, but there's just no substitute for me.

I can see that it may trigger an insulin response, but isn't it true everything we put in our mouths triggers an insulin response? I guess the issue would be drinking diet soda all day long would be making your pancreas work constantly at pumping out the insulin. But if you have a glass with dinner, well you're going to be pumping out insulin anyway. So like everything - in moderation. I generally have two glasses in the morning, one with lunch and one with dinner. More than I should have, probably, but that's just the way it is. Coke Zero is to me, what coffee is to most of America...LOL

Really good! I need to check Walmart's price, because they're $3.99 at our local grocery & that's a little steep.

I think it's about the same. I drink the hawaiian punch drink mixes cause they are made with splenda and $1.00
