This is dangerous to do for anyone with diabeties so I don't recommend doing it. I kept hearing all this hype about how HFCS isn't that bad for you and blah blah so I decided to run a little test on myself. I have type two diabetes brought on by the fact that I have PCOS(Poly cystic ovarian sydrome). My sugar levels have been controlled for some time now.

What I did was after taking my meds and making sure my blood suagr was normal like it always is now, when it was low I drank pop/soda with HFCS in it and 2 hours later took my sugar levels like I am supposed to and they were still high even though my meds are supposed to control that. The next day I did the same thing making sure my sugar levels were the same as when I drank the pop the day before and I drank fruit juice with no other additives than just fruit it's self, the fruit juice and the pop had the same amount of carb sugars listed on them. After drinking the juice and waiting two hours I took my blood suagr again and guess what...my levels were normal unlike when I drank the pop.

I've done this a few times over the last year to make sure that it wasn't just a one time thing and each time the natural fruit juice with no additives won out.

Needless to say I now avoid anything with HFCS in it...though it seems to be hard to find ketchup with out the stuff in it which is just sad.
