Soda can be both hypoglycaemic and hyperglycaemic. The lack of macronutrients makes it hypoglycaemic, and the high sugar content makes it hyperglycaemic. Consuming fructose corn syrup-, sucrose- or glucose-rich soda with liquor leads to impaired blood glucose. It can cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. It can also increase insulin resistance over time.

Sipping smart: How to control blood sugar while drinking soda
• Consider adding lemon and glucose to your soda if you are hypoglycaemic. This will reduce soda’s impact on your blood sugar.
• Try your soda with stevia. It is advisable to avoid the addition of artificial sugar. This will prevent sudden glucose spikes.
• Consider drinking soda with a meal or snack that contains protein or fibre. This will slow down the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream.

Studies show that soda has a very high-calorie content. It can lead to unhealthy weight gain. This is another risk factor for poor glucose management. So, reducing or stopping soda consumption can be a beneficial step. This will improve your blood glucose level and reduce the risk of other diseases too.
