Apologies if this is in the wrong section but I was curious if anyone knows if Aspartame can cause type 2 diabetes. I've been diagnosed just over a week and know my blood test had a level of around 32 only 6 months ago, now 56. I absolutely loved fizzy drinks and about 6 months ago decided to make the change to diet stuff like coke zero etc. As my one vice really I was getting through a bottle a day. Do you guys think this maybe the cause?
