My friend developed diabetes after having a liver transplant. It seems his blood glucose levels are very unstable. His medications also interfere with the liver properly breaking down. He has been complaining of sharp electric like pains going down from his right hip throughout the leg. I was thinking it might be like a muscle cramp and sometimes not drinking enough water will do that. I asked him and he said he is drinking about a gallon of Crystal Light a day. I was trying to just get a plain water count. I know that CL has aspartame as its sweetner can this be affecting him and he doesn't realize it.
Are there any suggestions what he can try to drink? I told him that other diabetics were telling me about Stevia and Agave are there any ready made drinks that use these?
