A report from the Netherlands has shown that caffeine in coffee raises blood sugar levels even without adding sugar to the coffee. And another study from scientists at Duke University Medical Center reported that drinking coffee could upset a diabetic’s ability to metabolize sugar. To keep your blood sugar levels from rising too high, your pancreas releases insulin. High levels of insulin constrict arteries to cause heart attacks and act directly on the brain to make you hungry, on your liver to make more fat, and on the fat cells in your belly to pick up that fat. If these studies are confirmed, diabetics may soon be advised to restrict coffee as well as those foods that cause the highest rise in blood sugar after meals.
