Stinging Nettles and Coffee for DiabetesIs stinging nettles and coffee good for diabetes patients? For them, knowing what is safe to eat and what they can’ t touch is a constant battle and a constant chore. Checking everything before you consume is highly important to make sure that you do this in order to maintain a healthy blood sugar level and prevent yourself from damaging your internal organs and nerves any more than necessary.

Stinging nettles and diabetes

Some studies suggest for instance that the consumption of stinging nettles might increase blood sugar level. As anyone suffering with diabetes is no doubt aware, the condition causes insulin to stop being produced or to stop functioning as effectively and this then results in more sugar free in the blood. This extra sugar then results in damage to the internal organs and nerves over time which can result in tingling sensations, lack of vision and potentially diabetic shock. By elevating your blood sugar level with stinging nettles then you can worsen symptoms and this of course is something that is best avoided.

While other studies have suggested that stinging nettles could in fact decrease blood sugar and this would then make it useful for diabetics. In fact some studies warn against the potential dangers of using stinging nettles alongside other diabetic medicine in case it causes too sudden a drop in blood sugar which could also be very bad.

Coffee and diabetes

Several studies have found that coffee drinkers, especially those who drink a lot of coffee, have a lower risk of diabetes than do other people. In fact, it appears that decaf coffee may actually help people keep their blood sugar under control, whereas regular coffee has a detrimental effect on blood sugar. Caffeine unbalanced by other coffee compounds may be even worse.

However, for those who have already diabetes, coffee do more harm than goods.

To sum up, it is difficult to determine whether certain food or drink is good or bad for your health. The safest way is to take moderately and take a regular test of your blood sugar level.
