A report titled “Coffee and type 2 diabetes: A review of the latest research” highlights the potential role of coffee consumption on the reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and the potential mechanisms involved.

The research was presented at a satellite symposium hosted by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC) at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) 2018 Annual Meeting in Berlin.

Key research findings highlighted in the roundtable report include:

  • Meta-analyses have suggested that drinking 3-4 cups of coffee per day is associated with an approximate 25% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes
  • The inverse association between coffee consumption and type 2 diabetes was shown in both men and women
  • Meta-analyses has suggested that both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee are associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes1
  • A number of potentially clinically relevant compounds are present in coffee, including: caffeine, hydroxycinnamic acids notably chlorogenic acid, trigonelline, diterpenes eg cafestol and kahweol, and caffeic acid
