Dear List Serve:

Coffee is an interesting paradox in that the data indicate that coffee consumption may lower the risk of developing diabetes.  At the same time coffee can increase blood glucose levels in some people who have diabetes.  This doesn't mean that it needs to be excluded from the diet, only that one needs to be aware of the potential and treat it if necessary.

I haven't had sugar in my coffee (or tea) since I was diagnosed with diabetes and to the best of my knowledge coffee in itself does not contain any natural carbohydrates or sugar. The effects on blood sugar of drinking black coffee would therefore more have to be how the body responds to a high dose of caffeine, e.g. releasing glucogen from the liver.

I've never noticed that coffee has effected my diabetes at all. I use artificial sweetener and milk which I compensate a bit on my pump.

I have recently seen this effect from coffee.

I can have a normal FBS, and after 2 mugs I'll be in the 150-160 range, with no source of carbs.  I may have to switch to decaf, or half caf.

Since my last c-peptide shows my insulin levels approaching those of the typical type 1, I suspect this caffeine impact may show up more in T1's than T2's.  Does anyone know of a study that looks into that?

While regular coffee intake may help reduce your risk of some diseases, including liver cancer, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, some research has shown that caffeine can have negative effects on individuals with type 2 diabetes. If you are diabetic and currently drink one or more cups of coffee per day, you may want to switch to decaffeinated coffee.

 Coffee does not contain sugar as far as I know. People put sugar in their coffee and then it has sugar. I take coffee black as milk too has sugar. I think it may increase my BG slightly but not much.
