Much has been studied about long-term negative effects such as aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose, artificial sweeteners found in diet drinks. It is now that a group of scientists have found that the consumption of these substances can be a risk factor for generating glucose resistance, and in turn, result in diabetes.
Researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel documented in their research article that the consumption of artificial sweeteners negatively influences the balance of the intestinal flora and that this would lead to glucose resistance.
The study first included mice that were fed artificial sweeteners. After finding that the rodents exhibited glucose resistance, the scientists collected data from another nutritional study involving nearly 400 people. What they found was that those individuals who said they were avid users of these substances had somewhat high ranges of glycosylated hemoglobin – a parameter that allows us to know if there is glucose resistance – compared to those who do not consume them at all.
