    Well it contains sugar in the form of sucrose, so probably. No idea how much sugar though.

    You could make your own hot lemon with boiled water and squeezed lemon juice and then take paracetamol and a decongestant if that’s needed too.

    Or use the Lemsip and test your BG afterwards to see what effect it has on you.

    Thanks for that, I try to find out things on the internet but have no luck, maybe I look in the wrong places, this is usually when I am stuck I post on here, but the people are great and lots of helpful information and tips to pick up

    A great way to get nutritional and ingredients lists of foodstuffs or over the counter meds is to look at one of the UK supermarket websites as they list those facts and all it takes is a click of a button. If you get stuck (sugar has dozens of different names) then a quick Google should help.

    Get well soon.
