Does caffeine affect BG?

Does caffeine affect BG?

I remember being told I can have as much coffee and tea as I want. Now I'm reading that caffeine is one of four bad things that affect BG? Any experience or authorities on the subject? What's the latest?

I have 3 x tea and 2 x coffee each day, both with milk, no sweetening, use skim milk for tea, full cream for coffee, makes NO difference to levels.
But a bought latte medium size can hold my sugar level steady for at least an hour even if late for next meal, have tested this quite regularly and that is without any food. I have full milk then too 😀

Caffeine doesn't seem to have a unified position among doctors and researchers. some says its ok, some say it's bad. All will say it's bad in the form of sodas, whether diet or worse, regular. Tea and coffee seem to be ok, as long as there isn't too much sugar, cream and add-ons to introduce sugar and carbs.
