Caffeine Might Foster the Development of Type 2 Diabetes

A recently conducted study has highlighted that caffeine might foster the development of type 2 diabetes by significantly disrupting the glucose metabolism.

Type 2 diabetes is a major public health problem and previous studies have been suggesting a protective effect of caffeine whereas this study has come with totally contradicting findings.

James Lane, PhD, Duke University talks about several studies which have been emphasizing caffeine's potential for increasing insulin resistance in people who are not suffering from diabetes.

Lane further suggests that there have been different studies showing the increase in blood glucose after they consume caffeinated beverage such as coffee which can further hinder in the efficacy of treatment aimed at controlling their blood glucose.

The findings of this study are considered to be quite useful as more than 220 million people worldwide have diabetes.

Editor-in-Chief Jack E. James, PhD, School of Psychology, National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland, said, "The links that have been revealed between diabetes and the consumption of caffeine beverages (especially coffee) are of monumental importance when it is acknowledged that more than 80 per cent of the world's population consumes caffeine daily".
