Coca-Cola and other such drinks are artificially sweetened and flavoured. They contain very high quantities of sugar. There is 39g of sugar in one 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola. People with diabetes need to be watchful of their blood sugar levels. So, such sugary drinks can be harmful to them. But, there are ways to stabilise blood sugar levels. You can try healthier alternatives to Coca-Cola.

Healthy alternatives to Coca-Cola
• You can try having unsweetened beverages like plain soda and lemon juice.
• You can also try coconut water. It is naturally sweet, so, it is not harmful.
• Consider having lemon water with a pinch of salt. This can give you an instant energy boost.
• Unsweetened iced tea or black coffee is also a refreshing summer drink.
• Fruit-infused water is another healthy and tasty alternative.

Coca-Cola is sweetened with the help of white sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Glucose and fructose are simple sugars. Simple sugars can increase blood sugar levels when consumed. This can lead to a sharp increase in blood sugar. Coca-Cola also contains high amounts of caffeine. Caffeine can increase insulin resistance and raise sugar levels.
