    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Experience with Stevia

    I have to be careful with sweeteners because I have a tendency to bouts of reactive hypoglycemia. I tried Stevia and Truvia for awhile and, much to my surprise, found that these do cause reactive hypoglycemia, so I had to give Stevia up. At home I use "Just like Sugar" which comes in a plastic jar and not in packets. It is based on chicory root, has a great taste and doesn't cause reactive hypoglycemia for me. Outside, I carry around Splenda which I use sparingly, as I haven't found anything better that's natural for carrying around.
