A 29-year-old female asked:
is potassium gluconate sugar-based? thought 'gluco-' meant sugar... if so, will it affect my blood sugar levels?

Yup and No.: Potassium gluconate is the potassium salt of gluconic acid which is indeed related to glucose. The amount of potassium gluconate ingested is very small so it will not affect bg levels.
