type II

I am recently diagnosed type II  - what happens if I accidentally overdose on sugar - eg. I drank a glass of coke rather than coke zero?
My levels are under control ranging from 4-8 but a friend who is type 1 said that he would go into a coma if that happened?
Any thoughts or ideas?

While eating smart is a great idea - one can of coke ain't gonna kill ya either literally or figuaratively.  You would probably have to drink several 2 litre bottles of it before you had to worry about comas.  It would however effect the Type 1 more drastically but still not to the exagreated effect as stated.
