What do you know about Stevia for diabetics?
I found Nestea in 20 oz bottles made with Stevia? I am recently diagnosed and Dr thinks with diet I can reverse. They have 13 grams of carbs per serving and 12 of sugar. I had the raspberry and it was awesome.

Hi,

Stevia is fine for diabetics.  However, the 12 g of sugar is not fine.  

It will best if you can find low carb / sugar free drinks.  Best if these are naturally sugar free as artificial sweeteners are also not good.

'Natural' sweeteners such as Stevia, Erythritol, Lohan do not raise blood sugars and may be suitable.

Hope this helps.

I've been watering it down. And adding lemon. I just can't drink plain water everyday. I'm on a very tight budget. I'm not allowed to drive because of meds I'm on. So I'm at the mercy of others. You find out who you can count on. Short list!!

If the drink has stevia why does it also have sugar?

the 12gr of sugar is included in the 13gr of carbs so its not carbs "and" sugar  its carbs "including" sugar.

12gr of sugar would raise my BG 50 points.  I dont know what it would do to your BG.
