I felt the same way but my drinking of diet pepsi was out of control.
I was drinnking 2 2-liters a day.
I gave them up because I was afraid it would hurt my kidneys.

I drink a lot of water as well. However, I feel that everything else I love has now been taken away from me. I am not going to give up the Diet Pepsi. I just try to drink 2 waters to every Pepsi.

My fbs started dropping when I stopped eating late at night.

I switched from drinking my beloved diet pepsi before bed to drinking water and my fbs is much lower.
I also gave up diet pepsi for my New Years Resolution and so far so good,

I've read that one of the suggestions for bringing down a blood sugar spike is to drink water. It helps get the sugar passed through your blood stream and out of your body. So what you are saying makes sense. I think the most successful way to manage blood sugar is by finding out what works for you as everyone is different. It's great to find things that help. I've discovered that if I workout in the evening as opposed to earlier in the day, my fbs will be lower.

I'm a new diabetic, and so I'm new to blood testing. I'm also new to drinking my body weight in water (which is what it feels like sometimes)!

One thing I've noticed, though, is if I drink 16 ounces of water (or more) right before bed, I really have to pee when I wake up - but my FBS is lower. I eat the same thing every night before bed, and I went from 110/120 to 80/90. This has been the last three nights and nothing else has changed.

What's interesting is that the days I was getting 110/120 were mornings following otherwise good days, water-wise. The timing really seems to be part of it!

Has anyone else noticed this? :)
