Does sparkling water have an effect on blood sugar levels?
I've just learned that diet sodas have an effect on blood sugar levels. I believe that it is primarily the caffeine that causes the reaction, however am not sure.
Also, will sparkling water (let's say with 1 carb per 8 ounce serving) work as the daily requirement for water intake?
Thanks in advance! Additional Details GeeGee, I wasn't sure how to answer you. I meant 1 carb, not one serving. The water contains 1% fruit juice and splenda. I probably ought to have mentioned that earlier...
I doubt it - water can't have an effect on blood sugar levels
I don't think so, Check to see if it contains any suger on the back lable
it would differ for each person. I am a type 1 and I drink diet pepsi and have no problems with my sugar running high as a result of the diet pepsi. But I do know type 2's that can not drink any diet soda or they run high, caffeine or not.
Water is water. The only thing with water that will have an affect is if you let your bladder get too full. I had to remember always to use the bathroom before checking my blood sugar. It really made a difference. Good luck!
Diet caffeine free soda cannot effect blood sugars as it doesn't have any carbs.It's just artificially sweetened water.
Sparkling water is still just water. No carbs.
If you get the fruit juice added, you need to count carbs as with any other food or beverage.
pure sparkling water does not increase your blood sugar level.
Diet soda, even with caffeine, does not effect everyone's blood sugar- it can certainly, but it's surely not a universal thing. I drink alot of diet pepsi each day, and it does not cause my blood sugar to increase. I'd say it's more of an individual thing, but that being said, if someone is sensitive to caffeine, they may also be sensitive to whatever substances contribute to that one carb in the sparkling water- since even fruit juices can cause a spike. And do you mean one carb gram or one carb serving (which would be 15 grams?)
