Caffeine: Coffee and Soda

Diabetes and Caffeine

Love your coffee?
Or tea?
Or soda (diet or otherwise)?
Anything with caffeine??
Well Used Coffee Cup

You can see my travel mug is well worn.
Used everyday.
Travels to work Monday through Friday, full.
Although I wasn't a coffee drinker for a VERY long time
(can you say YUCK!)
I have developed a taste for a sort-of-coffee blend.
My own sugar free blend.
The large button on the coffee machine
2 T of cocoa
Splash of sweet cream sugar free creamer
Almond milk
1 t Splenda
Or extra creamer.....

Anyway, this isn't really about coffee.

It's about CAFFEINE!

Yes, Caffeine affects diabetics a bit differently than those normal people out there.
Who would have thought?  (Add your own sarcastic voice here)
But yes,
Caffeine interferes with our ability to keep glucose in check in quite a few ways.
If you want more details check out this website:


If you aren't into the science and details, just know,
Caffeine from coffee, tea, chocolate and soda
can make a difference in your numbers.
This is a true test it and see game -
Time of day
Type of drink
Food or no food
Can/might/could make a small and/or large difference.

We all know diabetes is an individual thing
So check it out and see!!

How does caffeine affect you?
I'm going to try to skip a day and see what happens.
Not today though,
It's a MONDAY!!


Have a great numbers day!
