As a type 2 diabetic I've been using my bikes to control my sugar, but recently I have been having problems with high blood pressure and higher glucose levels...plus a few other problems (ears ringing, slight dizzyness, etc.)
On Wednesday a friend told me that her experience with aspartame gave her the same symptoms, so after 5 cans of diet soda on Wednesday, my evening BP was 154 / 92, glucose was 6.2 (about 118 U.S.)
No aspartame on Thursday,,,evening BP back to 110 / 69, glucose 5.2 (98.8)...same today
everything else seems to be clearing up as well...eyesight is clearer, no more ringing ears)...and in the 2'nd day!
Is it me?...i've heard that some people are more sensitive to certain things, or has anyone else experienced this?
Made a huge difference to my commute today and am looking forward to some sketchy trails this weekend...who knew?
