    Hi I took green tea tablets in April to help me loose weight with no adverse effect on blood sugars. I have been taking green coffee beans for 4 days and my blood sugars are higher than I expected. I thought it was the lentil soup or potatoes that caused it but Ive been careful with my carbs for 2 days and sugars ranging 7 to 14 . This is unusual for me. Could it be the green coffee capsules?

    coffee beans has an effect on blood glucose as the beans are high in glucose.
