Re: [IP] cafeine and blood sugar

I drink a LOT of coffee, with and without caffiene, but always very strong.
It makes absolutely no difference in my bgs (weekends I don't drink much).
Perhaps coincidentally though, I do not feel the effects of the caffeine in
coffee either.  Diet Dew can sometimes buzz me (although at the conc of my
"mud" it has a much lower caffeine value), as can NoDoz (college days), but
coffee doesn't work that way.  I don't get the withdrawals that some have
