Does sweetener zero calories contain lactose sucrose leucine crosscarmellose sodium which is diet sweetener effect on triglycerides like sugar ?
Sweeteners: Don't have calories, i agree. The trouble is that our taste mechanism is made up of 6 stimulants--- sweet, sour bitter, salt, astringent, and metal. All god made food provides flavor from permutations and combinations of the 6. A single sweet input provides a jolt of pleasure that is addictive. It is brain signals that govern our ability to adapt to our environment. We need to obey diet rules. ...Read more
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
Jury's out: Cane sugar is sucrose, which is made of glucose and fructose. Corn syrup is mainly fructose. The big problem is probably not from the molecule itself but from how it's added to everything because it is cheap. Processed food has so much added sweetener to make up for lack of flavor that we're addicted to it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really.: Artificial sweetener is only helpful in that it will not contribute to elevating the glucose level. It does nothing to help correct the high sugar levels in diabetes. Other dietary adjustments and medications are necessary to keep the glucose level under control in diabetes. ...Read more

Does your body process different sugars differently (eg. Glucose, fructose, sucrose, lactose, etc.)?
With minor: Differences, your body can easily metabolize any sugar. Glucose, fructose and galactose are all simple sugars or monosaccharides. Sucrose, maltose and lactose are all compound sugars or disaccharides. Sucrose is formed as a combination of a molecule of glucose and one of fructose, and they are broken apart by enzymes. All are equal to 4 calories / gram. ...Read more
Read that Sucrose has very low GI compared to glucose.When sugar breaks in body,only glucose gets absorbed to bloodstream.So sucrose better sweetener?
Better = ?: Glycemic index (GI) is how fast a food raises your blood sugar, i.e. the glucose level in your blood. Sucrose has a lower GI than glucose, AND sucrose tastes sweeter than glucose. Also, higher GI is generally considered less healthy. So, I’d have to agree that sucrose is a “better” sweetener than glucose. Note: sucrose is still pretty bad, from a GI standpoint, just not as bad as glucose. ...Read more
Is potassium gluconate sugar-based? Thought 'gluco-' meant sugar... If so, will it affect my blood sugar levels?
Minor difference: There is about a 15% difference between whole blood glucose and plasma glucose, with the plasma glucose being higher. If you use a fingerstick glucose monitor, it is measuring whole blood glucose, whereas when you have blood drawn and sent to the lab, it is measuring plasma glucose. Some fingerstick meters will correct for the difference by adding 15% automatically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How to find other sugars such as pure glucose (dextrose), maltose, lactose, fructose, galactose, etc., without buying online?

Complicated: Cane sugar is sucrose, many fruits have fructose, sugar chemistry is complicated as there are so many kinds of sugars. They all have calories, and some are double sugars...Two molecules of a sugar.This is the real reason doctors have to study chemistry....See wikipedia article on sugars. ...Read more
