Like "Welcome To DC, Felicia! Please take care of your diabetes! I have heard that it is the yo-yo effect of going high and back down which gives one complications. I have several complications. They're no fun and are painful! So stay on your isulin/meds! And, BTW, IMO drinking the coke virtually 24/7, while not bringing on your diabetes, may well have hastened its arrival! Blessings to you and yours James"
