Vaping with Diabetes

As a diabetic, is it safe for me to vape?  I'm not a physician, nor do I claim to have all the answers on this subject, but I do have type II Diabetes and can offer my personal insight.    I have not noticed changes in my blood sugar from vaping.and I do regularly check my levels.   As a DIY mixer, I can personally say I've never seen a recipe that contained sugar and wouldn't vape it if it did, diabetic or not.  What most of the DIY community uses to create sweetness in their eliquid is sucralose,  which most diabetics are already familiar with because we use it as an alternative to sugar.  The other concern for diabetics would be Vegetable Glycerin but that concern, according to Science Direct is negligible. "Current evidence is limited but does not raise concerns about serious adverse effects from the use of glycerol in e-Cigarettes. The systematic absorption of glycerol appears to be reasonably safe."

As a former smoker, vaping is a smarter alternative for me, and I've seen no evidence to the contrary as a diabetic, or even for those that aren't diabetic.  I hope my insight into this topic has helped, and as always, I encourage you to do your own research.  You won't get the truth unless you take the time to research for yourself.
