Hello,

sorry for the slow response to you. I missed this post.

Some people with diabetes find that caffiene raises their blood sugar.  Most, however are fine and can drink caffienated drinks with no problem.

However, do not use sweeted drinks.  Ie. don't add sugar to your coffee and it is not recommended to use soft drinks at all, either regular or artificially sweetened.

To be sure, you can test say before taking and then 1 hour after taking a caffienated (but unsweetened) drink (don't take any other food 2 hours before doing this 'experimnet' as this can affect results).  If there is a big change in your blood sugar then you would have your answer.

Let us know how you go.
