I start every single day with my beloved KETO coffee.

I used to drink a lot of coffee when I was a radio announcer and would do all nights - probably 8 - 10 cups a night. Once I got out of radio, went back to school and started an IT career my coffee consumption radically dropped.

About 10 years ago I quit coffee all together because every time I drank it I would get a drop in Blood Pressure and start getting light headed. Eventually, I started drinking it again - this time maybe 2 - 3 cups a day and Blood Pressure doesn;t drop anymore.

This is from a Chris Kresser email I subscribe to:

Quote:
A recent study found that drinking coffee is associated with a longer lifespan and lower risk of death from all causes—but especially from cardiovascular disease and cancer, two of the top five causes of death.

This was an observational study, so the standard caveat applies: it doesn’t prove that coffee consumption caused the lower risk of death, it just showed an association between coffee consumption and longer lifespan.

However, there are a few reasons to believe that there may be a causal relationship:
  • The results were adjusted for age, race, smoking, sex, body mass index, alcohol consumption, and other health and behavioral factors.
  • The associations were similar for regular and decaf coffee and for ground and instant.
  • Genetic variants that affect caffeine metabolism didn’t affect the results.
  • The more coffee people consumed, the greater the protective effect, and the relationship was linear.
  • Coffee is full of antioxidants and other beneficial compounds that have been shown to reduce the risk of disease and promote longevity in other studies.
The link is to a NY Times article that links to the study.

I love coffee & have a mug or two a day. I've heard one doctor say it "raises insulin requirements." Other doctors say it has no effect at all.

I've tested before & after & it has no effect on my glucose, even with 1/2 tsp. sugar & some sweetened whipped cream, so I'm grateful. (Sweetened whpped cream has only 1-2 gms carbs/tbsp.)

Coffee can have such different effects on different people. I had to cut back on mine because it gives me a rise in blood pressure and palpitations. Go figure.

I agree with this comment! Of course it is one of the '"Standard Realities" for diabetics. We all react differently to different things...


This is probably true to some degree with all humans, but reading on this website and others about people with diabetes, I have no doubt this is a fact with diabetics....

Yeah, I was getting that for a while. I had to cut back and start drinking "darker" coffees. I drink less than 5 cups a week now. Usually just drink it on the weekends.
