Ed, being a diabetic I could see the potential. All diabetics are not created equally. I eat bread regularly, it does not spike my bs much.
Rice, potatoes and pasta are the worst offenders, pretty much out of my diet.
Most bbq sauces are ok for me as I don't use much. Some may be affected by the sugar content of the tomato product alone, others only from the added sugar.
I would like a sugar free or reduced sugar teriyaki sauce. I went to our local take out place yesterday that does a mean chicken teriyaki over charcoal.
I order without any extra sauce, just what it is basted in while on the fire, and it is still sugar over load for several hours.
I'm not big on sweets, don't sweeten tea or coffee, but when I do need some sweetener I use agave or stevia.
