Extract from the Telegraph:
"The study, conducted by Dr James Lane from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, is the first to track the impact of caffeine consumption as patients go about their normal lives.
Researchers monitored 10 regular coffee drinkers with established type 2 diabetes who were managing their disease through diet and exercise but with no extra insulin.
The patients were fitted with a tiny monitor which continuously tracked their glucose levels over a 72-hour period. Each took capsules containing caffeine equal to four cups of coffee on one day, and identical capsules containing a placebo on another.
All were free to eat whatever they liked. Researchers found that when the participants consumed caffeine, their average daily sugar levels went up eight per cent.
Caffeine also exaggerated the rise in glucose after meals, increasing by nine per cent after breakfast, 15 per cent after lunch and 26 per cent after dinner.
The findings, which appear in the February issue of Diabetes Care, add more weight to a growing body of research which suggests eliminating caffeine from the diet might be a good way to manage blood sugar levels."
