I've read from various sources that drinking caffeinated drinks (e.g., coffee, tea, diet sodas, etc.) is good for me (a recently diagnosed Type 2 diabetic); that too much caffeine is bad for me; that it really doesn't matter; that it depends on the person; etc.
I like to drink a 16 oz. cup of coffee (possibly two of these cups on occasion) in the morning. I also like to drink ice tea with lemon and Sweet 'n Low during the afternoon and with some meals. Very occasionally, I drink a diet Pepsi. Sooo, you can see that I consume a fair amount of caffeine. Can you please clarify (i.e., good or bad or bad in large quantities--if so, how large a quantity)? Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide.
