Artificial Sweeteners and 5 Other Surprising Causes of High Blood Sugar

1. Artificial Sweeteners

If sugar is a problem, sugar-free should be fine, right? Not necessarily. Artificial sweeteners do contain some carbohydrates that raise blood glucose. Some sweeteners are better than others, so read the nutrition label to find out how many carbs you’re getting. Stevia, a natural plant-based sweetener that adds no calories, may be a better option.

2. Caffeine

Caffeine may help you feel more alert, but it can also boost your blood sugar. If you drink coffee, soda, black or green tea, or any other caffeinated beverages, track how they affect your glucose levels and adjust your intake accordingly. Or switch to caffeine-free options.

i had read this someplace else, it is not unusual for some otherwise considered "wholesome" foods to raise blood sugar also.

i often have problems with low blood sugar, sometimes right after it has been too high.
I will feel hungry, then weak and shaky, then almost faint.

That is sometimes a problem for diabetics, too.

i guess the trick is to know what works well  to keep blood sugar right around 100 all the time.
