Why does my blood sugar spike after 2 cups of coffee w/no sugar, 2 tbsp nondairy creamer?
Details: woke up with a blood sugar of 120. Took a 14 unit shot of novolog fast acting insulin. Right after, I drank 2 cups of coffee with artifiicial sweetner (splender) and 2 tbsp of coffee mate non dairy creamer. When I checked my blood sugar 1.5 hours later, it was double to 240. HOW or WHY DOES THIS OCCUR?

splenda is NOT an artificial sweetener it's made from sugar.the creamer has sugar in it try using equal or the generic equivalent.find a sugar free creamer or cut down on how much creamer you use.i'm not diabetic but my parents and my brother are and i don't want to become diabetic so this is what i've benn doing for a few years now to help control my sugar level before my age gets the best of me.my parents have age on set diabetes

Here i s an excellent site with some wonderful options for you. It will definitely help you. Have a look. http://canmdh10.notlong.com/AAH6Tuq

Coffee-Mate's non dairy creamer has sugar.
Also, I think artificial sugars can raise your blood sugar a little when they activate the 'sweet' receptors, but I don't think that would be a big deal. Caffeine seems to have a little effect on blood glucose, but I can't find anything dramatic.

The creamer and splenda still have an effect on the blood sugar.

Splenda does not contain any carbohydrate grams.

But have you bothered to look at the amount of carb grams in the creamers?? they contain lots of stuff that is carby! and 2 tablespoons in a cup is a lot! Especially considering it doesn't have any fat in it to mitigate the carbs.

I get by with far less spike with real sugar and cream!

Blood sugar changes all the time, but it roughly does a undulating pattern continuously. This is true whether you are diabetic or not. A diabetic, however, has a more pronounced undulation. So, of course, you then have a spike in your blood sugar. Long acting basal insulin is used to correct this too high/too low pattern.

Further there is a phenomenon called the Somogyi effect. This is defined as increasing blood sugar levels through the day. So you start the day low (or high) and go up and up (or down and down). This pattern is a 24 hour pattern, but **can be longer or shorter**. Pills, that is, the hypoglycemic medicines, are used to manage this.

So, in addition to insulin, you would also need to take these other products to control your blood sugar.

Recent studies indicate that artificial sweeteners stress your insulin isles and pancreas just as much a real sugar. I haven't seen that study first hand to evaluate. it. Sounds plausible, though.

Your best bet is to be sure that you are tightly controlled at all times. So that means you go to your doctor weekly-or more often-to accomplish this. And even to the point that you take your food with you when you are with family and friends at any event where food is involved, including a restaurant. That way, you know exactly what you're eating.
