Will Green Coffee Bean Extract Interact With My Diabetes Medication?

Is it okay to take green coffee bean extract with my diabetes medication?

Answer

Probably not. Green coffee bean extract is a natural product that is not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), making it difficult to know exactly what ingredients are in it. This product claims to decrease blood glucose when given to people with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 kg/m2 and no history of diabetes.
 
How this product works is still not completely clear, and it could possibly interact with diabetes medication or cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). There is not enough evidence to know if it's safe to take with diabetes medications and what the long-term effects would be.
