Artificial Sweeteners May Raise Risk of Diabetes in 2 Weeks

A new study, presented at a conference in Lisbon, finds that using artificial sweeteners instead of regular sugar could raise the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.artificial sweeteners

The research included 27 healthy people who were either given sweeteners, the equivalent of 1.5 liters of diet drink, or an inactive placebo. At the end of two weeks, the tests showed that those supplements saw a heightened response across all analyses.

Lead author Prof Richard Young said: “This study supports the concept that artificial sweeteners could reduce the body’s control of blood sugar levels and highlights the potential for exaggerated post-meal glucose levels in high habitual NAS [non-caloric artificial sweeteners] users, which could predispose them to develop type 2 diabetes.”
