Hi, I am new to the sight. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 6 years ago. I have been a willing and eager participant in the treatment of my condition and have learned to be sensitive to what is going on in my body. I believe I have been pretty successful in controlling my diabetes. Just when I was getting comfortable in my dependence upon Splenda as my sweetener of choice I learn in an article on this web site that Splenda may not be all that it is hyped to be. That came as quite a shock to me. After reading the article I can envision the possibility the Splenda could even be partly responsible for the on-slot of type 2 diabetes. It seems that Splenda is practically an inert substance that has accumulated in our drinking water since its introduction. It accumulates in body fat and can become in irritant over time. So the question is should I go back to sugar for my morning coffee and desert sweetener?
