November 2 2007 day 22 - Who's your sugar daddy?

Here's a question for you. Take a look at the photograph above. There's Splenda, Stevia, Aspartame and Sugar. Which sweetener should a Diabetic choose?

If you didn't choose sugar, you're in for a surprise. Contrary to popular belief, diabetics can consume foods containing sugar. The advent of fast acting insulin, combined with the knowledge of knowing how many grams of carb. are contained in a food item, makes it much easier for an insulin dependent diabetic to indulge in the occasional sweet treat. Artificial sweeteners do help, because they serve as a substitute for sugar, and avoid spikes in blood sugar. But the next time you see a diabetic indulging in a sweet goody, go easy on them. Chances are, they are" covering that food with insulin".


There is no cure for diabetes, yet.
