Our main sources of fructose are sucrose from beet or cane, high fructose corn syrup, fruits, and honey. Triglyceride (TG) transport in very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) was assessed by multicompartmental analysis of VLDL-TG specific activity after injection of 3H-2-glycerol. Withdrawal of treatment resulted in a much greater rise of the fructose in the nervous system in animals that had been diabetic for six weeks before institution of treatment with insulin than in animals treated from induction. In response to another comment, Dr. Eleven subjects dropped out or were excluded during the trial. We will show below that any and all natural sweeteners — sugars — are nutritionally equivalent.
In the ambulatory setting, no significant differences in plasma glucose, glycohemoglobin, serum
