Is Emergen C Supplement safe for Diabetics?

Wanting to know if the supplement Emergen C which is a high Vitamin C supplement with other minerals is safe for diabetics. I bought a box and tried a pack in the morning and my blood sugar skyrocketed to 450 mg and it’s been high throughout the day even with insulin boluses. It doesn’t have much in the way of carbs or sugar so I’m confused. My diabetes is under great control so this was a shocker. Funny thing is I felt pretty good throughout the day and was even surprised that my sugar was that high. The only thing I ate the whole day was a bagel that I took a bolus for. Anyone else had this problem?

    Vitamin C can cause high blood sugar readings in diabetics. I don’t know if it is an artificial high or not. There are a few other vitamins that cause elevated sugars. Research a little on line on lin-. Run an experiment on yourself. Try a partial package or smaller dose to test what you can tolerate without such a spike in BG’s.

    I am a type 1 and I have used emergen c before and did not have that problem. I have gone through about 1/2 a box. Some must react and others may not.
