What's everyone's opinion on using artificial sweeteners to help control sugar?

I use stevia in my tea and coffee. That one is okay, as it's natural. Some others can supposedly cause health defects. But I like the taste of stevia.
A year ago I gave up all artificial sweeteners and I started feeling better within 2 weeks! I know it affects us all differently, but it was like poison to my body.
I prefer Splenda, it tastes & measures like natural sugar. My husband likes it too.
I don't use it but I heard it was bad for you
Stevia is not natural... It contains erythritol - which is just another chemical as in all other artificial sweeteners. It's best to stay away from as much refined sugar as possible.

Splenda is no better... Stick with honey or agave nectar in small amounts.

I have been been getting really low blood sugar (around the 50s) ever since I came back to college a week and a half ago. I'm usually in class when it starts to happen or really far away from my dorm. Also I eat a healthy well balanced breakfast and lunch. The only thing is that I have to walk a lot since it is a really big campus. It is really scaring me. Does anyone have any opinions on what can help me?
Hi everyone! I need help with choosing a pump :( I have tons of pamphlets that do a great job selling the product but I want to hear personal opinions. How expensive is the upkeep for them?
