I'm not diabetic or never have been, but out of curiousity, I do check blood sugars now and then because my fasting sugar with blood work has always been a little (100-115) above the "norm". It amazes me how much carbs will cause it to rise, such as bread, potato, popcorn, etc. Just one more reason to stay away from them. It goes right back down after a few hours, so I guess it's working normally, but I try to keep it (even with eating) less than 120, which is pretty easy to do with just proteins, veggies and fats - and I even have some berries in the mornings in a protein shake usually.
I have a friend who is diabetic and the artificial sweeteners DO raise her blood sugar, not as much as regular sugar, but enough that she no longer uses any of them. So, it does affect some people that way and I guess that aspartame is worse than maybe Splenda or Stevia.
(so I've heard... the aspartame affects hers, she's not tried the Stevia).
