I'm going to assume when you say sugar control, that you are talking about your blood sugar.

While water doesn't necessarily help control your blood sugar, water is calorie- and carbohydrate/sugar-free and therefore will not raise your blood sugar. With any beverage that contains sugar, it will have an effect on your blood sugar levels.
Other sugar-free beverages would include coffee, club soda, diet soda, unsweetened iced or hot tea, Crystal Light flavored beverages etc.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or feel free to contact your local Hy-Vee dietitian for further assistance with sugar control.

How's your cholesterol? If you think that the normal reading you got back in 2004 (or earlier) means you're in the clear, think again: Levels of the artery-clogging substance often rise with age, and cardiologists say everyone 20 or older should be screened for high cholesterol at least once every five years, with more frequent screenings for anyone deemed to be at high risk for heart disease. If it's been awhile since your last cholesterol screening, now's a good time to ask your doctor if you're due for one.

The good news? If your fasting total cholesterol level exceeds the desirable level of 200, or if your low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is above 100, getting it down to a safer level could be easier than you think. In fact, with simple lifestyle modifications -- and, if necessary, drug therapy -- people often see significant reductions in cholesterol within six weeks. Get going right now, and by New Year's Eve you could be toasting your cholesterol level rather than resolving to lower it.

Hi,

You can add up to your diet the Fruity Tea Soda. I am seriously addicted to this. My current favorite flavor is Twinings Cranberyy and Pomegrenate tea. I make a pot before I go to bed at night so that it’s ready for fizzing up in the morning. To make Tea Soda: steep 2 tea bags of your favorite herbal tea (tisane) in 3 cups of boiling water. Chill. Add 1 cup of sparkling mineral or soda water. You’ll have instant flavored fizzy drink with close to no sugar. Not to mention the lack of coloring and other additives.
