Re: [IP] Diet Coke raising BS!
In a message dated 8/9/00 3:09:47 AM !!!First Boot!!!, email @ redacted
<< ve been drinking Diet Coke since it came out, and had no problems with it
affecting my bg levels until last year when they changed something... I've
been periodically checking to see if they've changed it back. But they
have enough sugar to turn the test strips bright blue, and they'll raise my
bg from 70 to over 300 if I just drink one 12 oz. can. So I guess you
can consider me to be an unhappy CocaCola customer... and like most big
companies they don't seem to care since they never sent me the information
they promised and in fact they laid off most of the people that I had been
talking to about the problem. >>
This situation mades me so mad. When I called the FDA to report this, the
complaint coordinator told me they have heard from other diabetics the same
thing and some amount of sugar is allowed. I asked for the report that
states "that amount" and it was never sent. There is the Freedom of Info.
Act which means they have to send it to me, but they didn't and it was going
to cost me $$ to pursue it. I even contacted attorneys, but they said no
damage was done so I didn't have a case. My son's sugars were registering
all the way up to "HI" on the meter drinking diet Dr. Brown's Black Cherry
for 5 days. I'd say damage was done!
My main concern though is for diabetics who drink one after the other;
what would that do to their blood sugar? I shudder to think!
