Can Diabetics drink Diet Cola of Pepsi?
if not then name any drink (including fruit juices) that they may drink without affecting their health.[available in all parts of the world] .
Additional Details
I live in India and here most of the big cola brands are available,so telling w.r.t India will also help.

Which type of diabetic??

Better not because the diet drinks contains
as much sugar as the normal one.
Citrus fruits will be ok.

not at all mr. think bout ur health

Yes, no body will stop you from drinking whatever soft drink you like, especially if you wish to help your country and careless about your health. But, what I feel is your health should be the first preference. Soft cola, etc. has significant sugar that will worsen your blood sugar problem. Therefore, it is better that you avoid this. Natural fruit-juice is OK, but not too much as this will also increase blood sugar. So be careful on everything you eat and drink. Take care and regular exercise is must.

Better drink natural ones such as butter milk,fruit juices n honey mixed with warm water....etc.,
Try to avoid artificial drinks/Coke n Pepsi colas.

yes. DIET colas are fine. In fact, they might even save your life!

Diet colas have NO sugar and NO calories. They DO NOT raise your blood sugar. if you are used to drinking MANY regular colas each day, then Diet Colas will DEFINITELY save your life!

But you MUST limit your intake of diet colas! No more than 2-3 a day. There is some evidence that the artificial sweeteners in diet colas might cause cancer. So use them in moderation. Just ONE can a day is MUCH better

Do not drink pre-bottled fruit juices! They also contain MUCH added sugar, and are bad for the diabetic. Drink ONLY natural fruit juices that you squeeze yourself.

The ultimate drink for ALL diabetics is bottled water.

yeah its okay to drink diet coke when your diabetic, its alot better than regular soda and also make sure you drink it in moderation, aspertame is very addictive,

all "diet" drinks are fine to drink. including the 7up "free" sprite "free" etc...also coke zero and pepsi max are sugar free.
all fruit juices have sugar so they will spike your sugars. best to avoid them or else have them very dilute. (although if any exist i would sure like to know!! i'm in ireland!)
if you're unsure check the bottle. 0g carbs is completely sugar free. anything with 10g carbs or over per 100ml should be avoided completely except as a hypo treatment!

Depends how much you want to drink? my partner is diabetic and was drinking lots of diet cola as he doesn't take tea or coffee but doctor told him it was bad for him, so he drinks it only occasionally. This is what I found on the internet for you:

Aspartame and diabetes
Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. Some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy (serious eye condition), in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame! The Aspartame also encourages unstable blood sugar levels, so diabetics may actually sometimes suffer memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic (destroy brain cells) when taken without the other amino acids necessary for good balance and treating diabetes successfully is all about balance.
Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; encouraging subtle levels of brain damage, seizures, manic depression, panic attacks and sometimes even serious anger and mood changes

Consumption of Aspartame can even cause these same symptoms to occur in some non-diabetics as well.

Diabetics can drink diet cola if they would like. Most of the time, they are encouraged to drink water. They can have milk products or juice if they count it in their carbs . Tea is good if its unsweetened. Sport drinks are discouraged.

diet soft drinks should be fine in moderation. Just remember that they are artificial substances being put in the body with potential risks of their own. Fruit juices... as long as they're unsweetened are also usually ok again in small amounts according to your doctor or nutritionist. I would follow ADA (American Diabetic Association) guidelines and/or ask your physician or nutritionist. The best drink(s) for diabetics? Water. Unsweetened tea, black coffee. I know it sounds boring. But you all do serve some wonderful teas there. Just cut out the sugar. Try artificial sweeteners for them like NutraSweet, Splenda, or the more natural Stevia. I hope this helps. Again, I'm afraid I do not know if these sweeteners are available in India, but usually anything is available via the Internet. Best Wishes.

Do you have nutritional information on your packaging in India? Look on the back and if the carbohydrate is between 0-2, it's safe to drink in any amount. Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Minute Maid Light Lemonade, Propel, they're all fine. To the person who said diet colas have as much sugar as normal ones, that is completely untrue.

anything diet.
it has no carbs, so no effect on the sugar.

juices will raise sugar and put them all out of wack.

ANY diet cola that uses artificial sweeter.

I don't know how you expect us to know what colas are available in all parts of the world.. but here are some that are available here.

Sugar free Crystal light drink mixes.

DIET coke, pepsi, ginger ale, root beer, sprite, mountain dew.
You have to make sure they all say DIET.

Unsweetened Ice TEA, Unsweetened Coffee.

Of course you can, i'm diabetic and drink "Diet" drinks all the time and it does not mess my blood sugars up at all.

yes i knew someone who used to drink diet coke and he was diabetic. just don't drink much of it and you will be ok.
