Does caffeine really have an effect on glucose levels. Is that just a myth?

When I visited my endo a couple of months ago she asked me how much coffee I drank and I told her one or two cups a day. She said that shouldn't be a problem. But I have noticed that if I overdo my bs can go up. I recently read an article about the benefits of coffee and the two problems areas were with pregnancy and blood sugar. The article said it can raise blood sugar. My advice would be to test and see. For almost everything you consume that is the best way to get the answers to what your own body can tolerate.

I think this has to be an individual thing- I drink 2-3 full size French press pots of dark roast every day (lots of the go juice in there!) with heavy cream and flavored stevia and my sugar usually drops after a cup. Coffee has antioxidants and fiber as well.
 
In those recent tests, the subjects were given pure caffeine tablets, not coffee- so I immediately discounted the results.
