Welcome to the latest edition of the Coffee & Health quarterly news bulletin, a resource for healthcare professionals and media.





In this expert comment, Mattias Carlström, Associate Professor of Physiology, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, discusses coffee consumption and type 2 diabetes.

This quarter, eminent experts in diabetes gathered at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) 2018 Annual Meeting in Berlin, Germany to discuss the latest research in diabetes aetiology, prevention, treatment and care.

Following the symposium, ISIC published a new report titled ‘Coffee and type 2 diabetes: A review of the latest research’, outlining the research and topics explored at the symposium. The report was covered in publications across Europe and around the world, including The Express, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Irish Sun, The Economic Times, Business Standard, Metro News and Today.
