Do you have a family history of Diabetes? or is there anyone in family having diabetes? Why are you using Splenda just like that or because someone in family has sugar?

I started a diet two weeks ago and started using splenda to make my food more paltable; maybe ten packets a day. I started having ringing in my ears that has increased in both vloume and frequency to the point where I have not been able to sleep at night for the last four nights. I stopped the splenda yesterday, after finally googling for contraindications. Is there any chance that ceasing the spenda (as well as other triggers such as grapefruit, salt, and sugar) that the tinnitus might ease?

Hi, for a long time now have said to people that juice makes me ill. I don't drink fizzy drinks much but when I do drink them I just feel terrible. It starts off with slight pain in the stomach area them overactive bowel movements, itching all over and even more everytime I pass urine. And also just the colour of my complection changes to very pale. I am also prone to ear infections, coughing fits. I used to think it was a caffine intolrance but I am now thinking it has something to do with sweeteners?
