There are a lot of claims that the artificial sweeteners, especially aspertain (sp), can have a negative effect on blood sugar, especially in people who are diabetic or "pre" diabetic. To date the FDA is saying that these sweeteners are 100% safe and there is no proof of their negative effects, but to be honest I don't think any definitive study has been made.
It is possible that artificial sweeteners can effect one person bad and have no effect on another. I suggest you do a little test. Stop using them or having anything with them in there for a week and see what happens. Then you will have an idea how they effect you.
