    For some people, simply ending their soda habit can bring them down to a healthy weight. When you have diabetes, it's more than just a weight issue. Down a 12-ounce can of soda, and you've consumed about 40 grams of carbohydrate (10 teaspoons of sugar), which will send your blood sugar level soaring. The bottom line: if you've been drinking sodas, they have to go, right now. If you need to lean on diet soda for a while, that's okay, but aim to whittle down that habit, too
