Does Coffee help lower the risk of Type 2 Diabetes

According to an article published by, coffee may lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The study reported that 3-4 cups of coffee per day is associated with a 25% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The research also revealed that it didn’t matter if a person drank caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee. The results of the study also showed that filtered coffee had a greater positive effect than boiled, and decaffeinated had a better effect than caffeinated coffee.
My take on this is that there are other ways to help yourself avoid developing diabetes than just drinking lots of coffee and feeling jittery all day. If you would like a more detailed assessment on managing your health and diet, please do not hesitate to call my office for an appointment.
