It’s no surprise that your blood sugar levels rise and fall depending on what you eat and drink. But diabetes experts have warned that the popular drink consumed by millions of Brits could spell bad news for their blood sugar levels.

Coffee can have significant health benefits, depending on how you consume it. But diabetologists say the caffeinated version of this black drink may not be the best choice for diabetics.

Endocrinology expert known on TikTok as diabetes voice“We know that even black coffee can spike blood sugar levels. We’ve seen this over and over again. And we’re making sure this is routine with continuous monitoring of blood sugar levels.” I am observing.”

Some people’s blood sugar is very sensitive to the effects of caffeine, and regular high caffeine intake in people with type 2 diabetes is associated with decreased insulin sensitivity.

Impaired insulin sensitivity means the body needs more insulin because the body is less responsive to blood sugar-regulating hormones.

However, a 2009 study of 40,000 participants noted that: Drinking three cups of tea or coffee a day reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes by 40 percent.

Luckily, your diabetes doctor has shown you how to enjoy these benefits and enjoy your coffee while avoiding blood sugar spikes.

1. Stick to black coffee

Voice of Diabetes explained that black coffee remains a “much better” option than drinking coffee with additives, creamers, syrups, etc.

She said: “I usually tell my patients, “Drink black coffee and try to get used to it.” Even if you don’t normally like black coffee, you can gradually develop a habit of liking it and enjoying it. We recommend that you try it on.

“Coffee actually has many benefits for your overall health, so you don’t have to eliminate it completely, but you do want to be smart about what kind of coffee you drink.”

2. Limit additives

Another tip offered by experts is to reduce the amount of additives you add to your coffee, as they can “contain hidden sugars.”

3. Choose high-quality beans

The diabetes expert added that the better the coffee, the tastier and smoother the taste, the easier it is to enjoy it without additives.
