I am trying to find out if alka seltzer can lower blood sugar.

last night I my bs went to 45, getting me sweaty, dizzy and weak.  Before I went to bed my bs was 127.  After checking it I had a glass of orange juice.  I also had an alka seltzer 10 minutes before that.  I woke up a few hours later with the lowest bs I have had since being diagnosed with diabetes.  Most nights I go to sleep with a bs lower than 127 and do not have oj or anything else, and my bs doesn't go below 80. 

The only thing I did different was to have the alka seltzer.  This made me wonder whether it could affect my bs.

This might just be guesswork but I imagine that alka selzer speeds up the digestion and as such might accelerate the removal of blood sugars and carbohydrates from the circulation, thereby possibly resulting in lowered BG levels.
