redkitty, that wasn't meant as a slam to you. What I was trying to say was that, according to the info in Michael's post, there did not appear to be any specific benefit to using the agave nectar over table sugar unless you were diabetic.

I apologize if I offended.

For a diabetic sugar is sugar, a carb and it will raise your blood glucose level. If you want to try it, you should check with your endo first. Then, your do a trial run with a small amount and test yourself an hour after..See what your blood glucose is.If over 180, your going to need to cut the amount. Then check again in an other hour and see if you are down to 140, if so you can maybe tolerate a small amount If still over 140 a lesser amount is called for or something like Splenda...Just have to remember, your body is insulin resistant and carbs need to be in small amounts..
