How often do you use urine glucose strips to check soft drinks ordered at restaurants?

Poll dates: December 19 - 26, 1999
Total Votes: 664

Unexplained high blood sugars after eating out at a restaurant might be caused by a regular soft drink being served instead of a diet soft drink. Sometimes servers mix up orders, and sometimes regular drinks are dispensed from diet taps.

An old trick to determine if a diet drink is really sugar-free is to place a drop of the soft drink on a urine test strip that checks for sugar. A change in color indicates sugar in the drink.
