Because I'm diabetic, I always drink diet drinks. When I go out to eat my options are diet cola, unsweetened tea or water. I order water with 2 wedges of lemon. When it gets to the table I add a pack of Sweet and Low and voila! Diet lemonade for free!

I am diabetic too. I use NO artificial sweeteners. Your body was not made to use artificial things like this. The sweeteners can be dangerous for a diabetic. They are worse for diabetics than anything else. They make your body crave sweet aside from any other damage they do.
I order a regular lemonade, a glass of water w/ lemon wedges and a glass of ice. I pour half the lemonade into the glass of ice, and if desired I add water and a lemon wedge to that. I share the rest of the lemonade with someone else.
I do not eat a lot of sugary things during the day so if I have this, I will not eat/drink anything else sweet that day.
I take Januvia and I eat about 4 or 5 small meals a day and my blood sugar level is always right on target. Nancy
