Brief Summary:

Hyperglycemia forms a direct and independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular co-morbidities in type 2 diabetes. Consumption of sucrose-sweetened soft drinks might further increase the prevalence of hyperglycemic episodes.

The objective of the study was to assess glycemic control in type 2 diabetes patients and healthy lean and obese controls under strict dietary standardization but otherwise free living conditions, with and without the consumption of soft drinks.
