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.
