I am newly diabetic and I don't drink soda. What can I drink besides water?
I have been told that fruit juice like orange and apple juice is not an option because of its effects on my sugar. I have found that diet soda has a really bad after effect on me so I steer clear of that as well. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Most of the fruit juices do contain, good amount of sugar. Yes you can try vegetable juices and sugarless drinks.

Hi... Most of the fruit juices and artificial drinks contain sugar in them... So the option that are available to you are sugar less milk, coffee and tea...  You can add sugar free for taste instead...  You can also try vegetable juices like carrot juice alternative to the previous drinks...

I been a diabetic for 42 years and I keep useing the restroom every 30 minute s even when my bloodsugar is 98. So I seen a Doc. for prostate and he did 3 different test and did a prostate laser sugery. But im still going every 30 min. now he put me on Visacare 10mg per day. Im still going. An ultra sound didnt show anything and a camera inside only showed partial inflamation. I can drink water all day and go every 60 min. which is still to much, but soon as I drink one diet dew, then I keep going every 30 min. again. Everyone else who drinks soda doesn t have this problem. Blood work and ultra sound don t show anything wrong with my kidney s. But other s say it has to be my kidney s. What do you think??

I have been recently diagnosed as diabetic. I am a regular social drinker , My frequency is twice a week and every time I drink 4 Large Whisky with soda. I want to know, how this will affect my health?

I have always drank soda. Mainly Pepsi (regular). The past week to week and a half I have noticed that after drinking soda I get sick. Well, I actually figured it out TODAY that my sickness was occuring after my soda intake. I become extremely nauseated, can t even eat or smell food, and become very weak with a headache. These are the usual symptoms, but at some times they are worse than others. Can someone please give me some insight as to what is causing this to happen to me? I doubt it s diabetes, I am 25, I am not overweight and have never had any problems before or at any other time other than when I drink a soda. Thank you!
