4 types of drinks that diabetics should not drink

TRIBUNJOGJA.COM – Uncontrolled diabetes has many serious consequences, including heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and other complications.

Prediabetes has also been linked to this condition.

Moreover, certain drinks can increase blood sugar and insulin levels and increase inflammation, which can increase the risk of disease.

The following Tribun Jogja summarizes four types of drinks that diabetics should not consume as reported on the Healthline page:

1, Flavored coffee drink

Coffee has been linked to several health benefits, including a reduced risk of diabetes.

However, flavored coffee drinks should be seen as a liquid dessert rather than a healthy drink.

Research shows that your brain doesn’t process liquid and solid food in the same way. When you drink calories, you don’t compensate by eating less later, which can potentially lead to weight gain.

Flavored coffee drinks are also loaded with carbohydrates.

For example, a 16 ounce (473 mL) Caramel Frappuccino from one well-known coffee shop contains 57 grams of carbs, and the same size of Blonde Vanilla Latte contains 30 grams of carbs.
