Take Diabetes Medicine Along With Drinking Coffee?
. Can people who take diabetes medication drink coffee at the same time as taking their medication?
It is important to understand that the main ingredient in coffee is caffeine, which can actually have many effects on the body such as a stimulant effect, feeling fresh, increasing concentration and focus. However, this should be ruled out first, especially for diabetics. Research has shown that caffeine consumption can make glucose metabolism worse, which can result in elevated blood sugar levels, which diabetes should be fighting for. Caffeine is also thought to affect insulin to become more insensitive so that the body will be forced to produce more insulin to lower blood sugar levels in the body. In addition, in diabetics who are often prone to gastric problems, the presence of caffeine actually worsens this gastric condition by stimulating excess production of stomach acid. Thus it can be concluded that caffeine consumption in patients should be limited or not consumed at all. However, we recommend that you consult this with the doctor who treats your diabetes, as well as to determine the diet pattern that is right for you. Here we attach a complete article about the dangers of caffeine in diabetics. May be useful.
