Hi there,
                Most people love their morning cuppa coffee!.Does drinking coffee help increase or reduce the risk of getting Diabetes?Exciting new research indicates that our near and dear can reduce their risk of becoming Diabetics by consuming lots of "DE-caff"coffee as a study indicates.As the authors of the study note"Although the first line of prevention for diabetes is exercise and diet, in light of the popularity of coffee consumption and high rates of type 2 diabetes mellitus in older adults, these findings may carry high public health significance."

Switch to decaf if you can, it's certainly less destructive. Caffine in any form, ie soda, chocolate, etc, is touted as being bad for us.

For those of us who are permanently addicted and choose not to forego it completely, there are ways to modify our exposure. The caffine in coffee is what helps keep my colostomy working, but I've found if I mix a can of regular with a can of decaf I get good results and it tasts just fine, too. I haven't given up chocolate, either, but have switched to the sugar free varities because of my Type 2. Try the caffine free diet sodas, too - better to drink water and/or lemonade but sometimes they just don't satisfy.

A strong jolt of caffine (espresso) can also kick a migraine - opens the blood vessels. Not recommended on a regular basis, but it works.

Hi there,

               here's an interesting article on the effect coffee has on the heart.The conclusion seems to be that habitual coffee drinkers are better off.

yeah   Yeah!  Thank you for this article. 
So nice to have some positive feedback (for a change) on one of my habits.  As usual, the key is moderation - and I'm okay with that.  Now if somebody would just tell us that smoking in moderation was okay, too??  Maybe 1 pack a day instead of 2?

I drink caffinated coffee by the gallons, and not just regular coffee but specality coffees such as mocha etc...

The coffee in and of itself seems to have little if any affect on my glucose levels either way (neither hyper or hypo) in fact the strange thing is when I am feeling somewhat hyper or ketonic and am dealing with the side effects of that (nauseas, polydipsia, polyuria, tension, headache, fatigue , moodiness etc..) it seems to almost help with that...make me feel better.

Of course I am well aware caffine/coffee dosen't lower glucose levels...but I am simply stating how it makes me feel.

As far as speciality coffees like mocha, it is the sugar or syrups added to the brew that increase my gluocse levels...but not the coffee or caffine in the drink itself.

Check out this list of search results from dogpile and read thru them. Caffeine and Blood Glucose

I think you will find that glucose is affected by caffeine.
