Caffeine can disrupt glucose metabolism and contribute to the development and poor ability to control type-2 diabetes, say US researchers from the Duke University. Caffeine has a potential for raising insulin resistance or impaired glucose tolerance in adults without diabetes which pre-disposes them for developing diabetes.
