Even Decaffeinated Coffee Protects Against Diabetes

Previously, meta-analyses identified an inverse association of coffee consumption with the risk of type 2 diabetes. I covered a couple related studies before:
However, an updated meta-analysis was needed because new studies comparing the trends of association for caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee have since been published.


To make a long story short, in this new meta-analysis, coffee consumption was inversely associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes in a dose-response manner as expected. However, both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee was associated with reduced diabetes risk. This points to other compounds in coffee, like the polyphenols, as being responsible for its benefits (not caffeine).
