Like "Excessive thirst is yet another problem with diabetes. I often place a sugar-free, fruit flavored hard candy in my mouth, and let it dissolve on its own. Be careful with those, though...too much/many can cause diarrhea. Also, the sweeteners they use MAY not be good for every diabetic. Products that contain Montitol as their sweetener have caused my blood sugar levels to go up every time. It takes experimenting to find out what artificial sweeteners, if any, cause changes in your BSLs. Hope this helps a little! :)"
