Coffee, Tea and . . . Diabetes?
A team of researchers from Duke University has suggested that caffeine may interfere with the body’s ability to control blood sugar levels, thus worsening type 2 diabetes. Reporting in the August 2004 issue of Diabetes Care, the study team uncovered a strong correlation between caffeine intake at mealtimes and increased glucose and insulin levels among patients with type 2 diabetes. These findings led the researchers to recommend that people with diabetes consider reducing or eliminating caffeine from their diets.
