When study participants drank sucralose, their blood sugar peaked at a higher level than when they drank only water before consuming glucose ... Insulin levels also rose about 20 percent higher ... when people routinely secrete more insulin, they can become resistant to its effects, a path that leads to type 2 diabetes"
