According to the sources, there are around318 million adults around the worldare suffering from pre-diabetes, including two million Australians.

Taking caffeinated coffee for an extended period can affect the body’s sensitivity to the hormone known as insulin. It means that the body does not respond well to the hormone as they use to. However, some studies also show that long term consumption of coffee can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Since these studies and statistics are confusing and unclear, you need to apply wisdom in consuming coffee. If you already have diabetes, you should be smart about how you consume your coffee. Avoid adding much sugar and other coffee products in your caffeinated drinks. You do not want to further raise your blood glucose level any further.

There are some studies that will show that drinking coffee or anything that is related to coffee may actually reduce the possibility that you are going to develop diabetes. Take note that the effect will be different when you already have diabetes. When you already have the condition, you need to be extra careful of the type of coffee that you will drink.

There are also some special “coffee products” that are meant to be taken by diabetics. During prediabetes, you can be smarter about your coffee choices and remember not to put too much sugar and cream. Also, only consume what you are recommended to drink throughout the day.
