If you’re gonna drink coffee, make it an Americano

coffee is ok for diabetes

A few months after I first learned that I have goddam diabetes, I did a glucose test with an ice vanilla latte.

That was a mistake! My blood sugar went from 118 to 244. Ouch.

But I’ve been drinking ice Americanos with impunity! And the blood sugar hit is basically zero.

Blood sugar reading before drinking: 86

This reading of 86 was late in the day on a Saturday. I hadn’t eaten anything yet.

Blood sugar reading after drinking: 81

This reading was about an hour after I finished my ice Americano.

So yeah … no blood sugar increase at all! It actually went down. Goddam diabetes has taken a lot from us, but at least we still have caffeine.
