Re: [IPk] Coke or Diet Coke

That's very interesting John.  I  recently got given Coke instead of  
the requested Diet Coke, which resulted in a very high BG reading  
soon afterwards, so I soon realised I had been given the wrong one.   
I felt dreadful afterwards, and as usual, it took a while to come  
down with the correction dose.

I must admit, I don't trust cafe's any longer, so I only have diet  
coke if I can see the bottle or can first.  I think some people think  
it doesn't matter which one they give you, they just think it won't  
hurt.  It does hurt!!

However, perhaps there is now another way of checking.
