In this study http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19114405 , after a potato-meal, coffee + 10 g sugar reduced postprandial glycemia by 20%, while pure coffee increased glycemia by 28%.
Has anyone measured their glucose levels after coffee and coffee+sugar? What were the results? What about for long-term vs short-term drinkers?

Disclaimer: I haven't measured my blood glucose levels after drinking coffee, ever, so this is just what i have experienced.
Back when i was still sweetening my coffee with sucrose i used to get seriously hypoglycemic ca. 1h after drinking my coffee (feeling cold, shaking hands). It was just 1 tsp of sugar, tho. I never got this kind of reaction from ingesting 10g or more of sucrose from, for example, candy. So there might be something to the combination caffeine + sucrose, just as the paper suggests.
