Sugar Substitutes and Type 2 Diabetes

Final Thoughts

Whether you choose to use sugar or a sugar substitute, choose your sugar wisely and keep your intake small. Although there are a number of sugar substitutes, some may be better than others in regard to how they affect your blood sugar levels. For those with type 2 diabetes, make sure to check the product labels to help you make an informed choice when it comes to your sweeteners.
 
If you have any questions, talk to your healthcare provider or diabetes educator about sugar substitutes and which ones may be best for your particular situation. And don't forget to trust your own experience -- like how your blood sugar and appetite respond to certain artificial sweeteners -- even if it doesn't seem to agree with the latest research.
