 My pancreas makes no insulin, so I don't see how drinking diet soda 
could cause me to go low.  I have never felt weird after drinking 
diet soda, and there was a time where I would drink several 20 oz 
bottles at work, and drink a quart of Crystal Light at home.
 I've cut way back and mostly have water now but I still have a few 
 diet drinks each week.
