Type 2 Diabetes is one of the most rapidly accelerating diseases today in terms of number of people afflicted. Theories abound as to why this is the case; however, scientists are now looking at new ways to improve the overall health of those both at risk for and suffering from this disease.
Many of these scientists have found that drinking coffee can significantly reduce the risk and effects of the disease.
Recently a study concerning the relationship between Coffee and Diabetes was conducted at Harvard Medical School along with Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Researchers explored the link between long-term coffee consumption and Type 2 Diabetes.
This study on the relationship between coffee and diabetes followed over 120,000 men and women for eighteen years. The researchers found that long-term coffee consumption actually reduced insulin resistance, which is the key factor in Type 2 Diabetes. They were able to conclude that long-term coffee consumption significantly reduces the risk for Type 2 Diabetes in both men and women and therefore benefits the health of the coffee drinker.
The results of this coffee and diabetes study were affirmed Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Although this study was of a smaller scale (7949 subjects), it found similar results. If the patient came into the study already suffering from Type 2 Diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance (also known as insulin resistance or pre-diabetes), drinking at least 5 cups of coffee a day reduced their insulin resistance. This was particularly true for women, who statistically suffer from a larger risk of insulin resistance than men. The health of those who drank coffee also benefited from enhanced insulin response.
The University of Helsinki in Finland, also did a study of the relationship between Coffee and Diabetes of over 14,000 middle-aged patients. This study was particularly interesting because the Finnish people have the highest coffee consumption in the world. This study again found that the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes decreased as coffee consumption increased. In doing this study, the researchers found that this relationship existed even when the results were statistically adjusted to account for other risk factors, such as age, smoking, weight, alcohol consumption, and filtered/non-filtered coffee.
As mentioned before, for some unknown reason women have a higher incidence of insulin resistance than their male counterparts in Type 2 Diabetes. This is probably the reason that a study at a University in Goteborg, Sweden studied women exclusively. They did this study on the relationship between coffee and diabetes over a period of twenty years with over 1000 women. They chose women who had no previous occurrence of heart disease or diabetes. It was found that women who had a daily consumption of coffee of five or more cups had an approximate reduction of risk for Type 2 Diabetes than women who consumed three to four cups of coffee daily. Another curious find was that consumption had another beneficial effect, that was a healthier level of cholesterol.
It was also confirmed through a coffee and diabetes study at a United Kingdom university that the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes was reduced with the consumption of coffee. This study looked at the effects of drinking coffee with regards to the gastrointestinal hormones that help to regulate the secretion of insulin. Another benefit was found to reduce the effects of Type 2 Diabetes. It was found that the absorption rate of glucose from caffeinated coffee consumption was reduced, thereby reducing the negative effects of Type 2 Diabetes.
In conclusion, these studies of the relationship between coffee and diabetes seem to suggest that the consumption of caffeinated coffee can be beneficial to reducing the overall risk of worsening and/or developing Type 2 Diabetes.
Diabetes affects more than twenty million Americans
This book lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being.
Dr. Cousens’s method is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days.
Both practical and inspirational
The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels
The diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks.
The third week focuses on live-food preparation Often Purchased Together
