    What with all the sweet ejuices, I was just wondering is there any sugar in them? :vapor:

    Yes, go for it. I saw my doctor last week (I'm diabetic) and told him I finally quit smoking but starting vaping and he was overjoyed that I finally stopped smokingk and was not concerned about vaping at all.

    Its not so much the sweetners, most made from Splenda but the nicotine. Nicotine restricts blood vessel and therefore blood flow which for diabetics is a real problem.

    I think that the VG in the juice is so minuscule it will not have a significant effect on your blood sugar, even if it did though in my opinion the health costs of analogs outweigh the costs of vaping so either way vaping is the way to go.

    Thanks for the info guys! This is really good to know. I was a pack and a half a day smokers for 20+ yrs. I noticed with vaping, I hardly want anything sweet...and that's SWEET! I vape nothing higher than 12% nic and most of my ejuices are 6% and 0%. This is great news. When I first started to vape I thought, this is too good to be true! I grew up with the old adage, "If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't" I was kinda scared to ask this question for fear I'd have to give up one of the best things that's ever happened in my life! LOL! WHOO HOO!

    I'm diabetic also and on 75 units of lantus daily. I am so glad that you asked this question.

    Yup, sure can. Odd thing is that I don't really crave sweets anymore. Never thought that vaping would do that... Good luck and have fun!

    I was diagnosed with type 2 3 months ago and it was really high at first. Doctor wanted me to start lantos, lovastatin and metformin. I tried the lovastatin and the metformin for about 4 days and had to stop because of the horrible side effects. Started on the Dr. Atkins Diabetic Revolution diet and never used the lantos.

    First blood glucose reading was 252, have brought it down to 102 in the mornings and sometimes 95-100. I have been vaping for 19 months now and proved it to myself that vaping does not affect your blood sugar levels.

    I have an allergy to gluten and PG and found that Virgin Vapors is really clear about every ingredient they use. Free of all common allergens, sugar, PG (unless you want it), and so many other things. Best liquid I have tried so far too. It's addictive!

    I had a problem with Vanila/Caramel juice - sweet. It made my sugar go up about 50 points... this does not mean that it will happen to other people, it is just as my body reacted to that juice... I now smoke the Marlboro Medium and don´t have any problems.
