Are you a coffee lover? You may want to rethink how you take your caffeine. Studies show that caffeine can spike the stress hormone cortisol and lead to a rise in blood sugar levels, resulting in a hyperglycemic event. However, for some individuals whose glucose is trending below 60 mg/dl, it can also lead to hypoglycemia due to no glucose properties present in Black coffee and unsweetened Almond milk.

To keep your coffee and blood sugar in check, try this
• Skip the sugar and syrups in your coffee to avoid spiking your blood sugar levels.
• Use unsweetened almond milk as a healthier and low-sugar alternative to creamers.
• Try swapping your coffee for alternatives like green or lemon tea.

In summary, caffeine can trigger cortisol, leading to a rise in blood sugar or hypoglycemia, depending on how you prepare your coffee. Optimising your coffee intake can reduce glucose fluctuations and maintain stable blood sugar levels.
