Is it safe for diabetics to drink sugar-free soda (like cola light)? Does it increase glucose level in blood or has any other influence on health?

Safe: Sugar-free soda such as cola light does not increase glucose levels in diabetics. There are no studies that show any significant detrimental effect of these sodas in diabetics. It is certainly better than drinking regular sodas, though water, unsweetened tea, club soda, and coffee are probably better choices.
