What is the role of coffee in reducing the risk of diabetes?

Coffee in Reducing the Risk of Diabetes

Coffee is a popular drink in almost all countries in the world. Coffee is the most popular drink among Finnish people.

Although coffee is sometimes considered unhealthy, there are benefits to drinking it. Studies have shown that it can protect against certain types of cancer, liver disease, and even depression.

Benefits of coffee for diabetes:


Decades of research have shown that regular coffee consumption can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. This is great news for coffee drinkers. But what effect does coffee have on those who already have type 2 diabetes? A lot of research has been done on this. Here, too, the fruit is in favor of drinking coffee.

Scientists at Harvard University conducted a four-year study on the role of coffee in the prevention of diabetes with more than 100,000 people for about 20 years. They found that those who increased their coffee intake by more than one cup per day had an 11 percent lower risk of developing type-2 diabetes.

Those who consumed less than one cup of coffee per day had a 17 percent increased risk of diabetes.

In fact, caffeine has been shown to increase glucose and insulin levels in the short term.

Decaffeinated coffee even showed a sharp rise in blood sugar, according to a study in men. Based on limited research data, more research is needed on the effects of caffeine and diabetes. Long-term exposure to coffee and caffeine may be associated with a reduced risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes, according to a recent study.

Get regular coffee:

There is a clear difference between how people with and without diabetes respond to coffee and caffeine. A 2008 study found that habitual coffee drinkers with type 2 diabetes regularly monitor their blood sugar during daily activities. It has been shown that coffee reduces the risk of depression and improves focus and thinking ability. It also applies to diabetics.

Regularly drinking coffee high in saturated fat or sugar can increase insulin resistance. It can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. The same goes for sugar-sweetened, even artificially sweetened, coffee and other beverages. Added sweeteners increase the risk of type-2 diabetes.

Drinking coffee regularly has good blood cholesterol. Coffee suppresses appetite, which helps in weight loss.

It’s good to know that coffee means hot water with no sugar or milk added to the coffee liqueur.
