Cutting out soda leads to lower fasting glucose?

Is this normal? Fasting glucose is typically 92. I cut out soda for two weeks and it has been about 86 ever since. Not sure if IBS is a factor, but HFCS does not bode well in my intestines.

Many things in soda, including caffeine, can raise your blood sugar. You are better off without the chemicals. Congrats.

Since it is well within normal range, I'd be thrilled. You may lose a few pounds as well.
