Crystal Light Lemonade?

Do any of you drink crystal light lemonade? We've started drinking it this summer as it's very tasty and refreshing. My husband has type 2 diabetes and my A1C is being tested next month to see if I'm also diabetic. There is no sugar and no carbs in crystal light, but it's sweetened with aspartame. I'm I right in assuming that it's OK for diabetics to drink, or could aspartame raise blood sugar? Any info is appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Crystal Light Lemonade?

From what I have read many say it doesn't affect glucose levels and some say it does. The main thing to stay away from is a sugar alcohol substitute which they say can raise your BS. Maybe you can ask your Dr. or even your local pharmacist just to be on the safe side. Hopefully someone with better knowledge of this will post a more helpful answer to your question.

Good luck...JJ....
