"You're definitely right about that. There's no use getting all bent out of shape because of your condition. If anything, getting diabetes has really put my life back into perspective."

"Same here cynthia i am still using unrefined sugar.... it is almost a month of not monitoring my BG but i am very careful in choosing my food to eat; less carb and more on fruits. probably next week i'll have my FBS."

Cynthia D replied to Ruel B. Garces's discussion 'Artificial Sweetenrs common effects'
"I like stevia except it increases my BG which I find surprising. So does agave syrup which is supposed to be low glycemic. Odd. Perhaps a pinch of unrefined sugar would be better. I'll compare."

Thanks, man. Keep up your hard work with your diet and exercise, haha. You don't want to have to wind up on insulin. It's not that bad once you get used to it, but it's still pretty annoying. But I've only had diabetes for about a month, so maybe it gets less annoying over time, haha.
