Coffee may raise risk of prediabetes in some young adults
Coffee may raise risk of prediabetes in some young adults (September 3, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Italy - Coffee may raise risk of prediabetes in certain young adults, according to a report presented at the annual ESC Congress. Researchers studied over 1,100 individuals, aged 18-45, all of whom had stage 1 hypertension but no diabetes. Researchers then analyzed which participants were fast or slow metabolizers of caffeine, and followed participants for 6.1 years. Results showed that moderate coffee drinkers were at 24% increased risk of prediabetes, while those who drank none at all or over 3 cups a day were at 2x increased risk. Interestingly, this risk was only increased when an individual was a slow caffeine metaboliser.
