This was in the Dr. James Lane, professor of psychiatry at Duke University, who led this study, said; “in a healthy person, glucose is metabolized within an hour or so after eating. Diabetics, however, do not metabolize glucose as efficiently. It appears that diabetics who consume caffeine are likely having a harder time regulating their insulin and glucose levels than those who don't take in caffeine.”
Avoiding caffeine might be another way to better manage their disease.
Remember to note that this person is a psychiatrist, no data on the study was noted here. For instance was the coffee black, sugar, cream or was the study done in decaf and the results. This was published by the http://http://www.teeccino.com//ArticleDetails.aspx?ArticleID=13 is a Tea Company (found on the Internet.) They sell decaf teas etc., was it bias? Is all caffeine the same for raising blood sugars?
I use a health food brand of Carbonated beverage called STEVIA, whatever flavor i.e. although it no chemicals and sugars it has caffeine, which I noticed it made me hungry...Careful if you have a weight problem (diabetes.)
Was is the chlorogenic found in coffee instead of it's caffeine as some suspect? More research needs to me needed.

The main reason this issue is here is; one, its news to me and two, I am watching when I drink caffeine teas of coffee to see if it effect my blood sugars. Three, its wise for readers who are diabetic to do the same.
In this link are many other opposite findings of the study of caffeine effect on diabetes.

*My favorite tea is the no caffeine Rooibos (red tea) use to be called red bush tea. Lots of research has been done on the large amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants contents with very little tannic acid. http://www.africanredtea.com/ Also, found in bigger health food stores.
Please for others let us know of your findings on the subject....
