Many patients come to clinic asking about how drinking coffee can
affect their health either for good or bad. A recent study
published in the annals of internal medicine followed thousands
of men and women over a number of years and showed that drinking
coffee actually had a significant protective benefit in helping
prevent type II diabetes, however more evaluation is necessary.
The purpose of this pamphlet is to better describe the risk
factors for type II diabetes, as well as lay out lifestyle
modifications that can be made in order to reduce a patient’s
risk of developing type II diabetes.
