Yes, caffeine raises blood sugar. It shocks the adrenals, which raises blood sugar for "fight or flight" - so avoid all caffeine.
There are SO many things besides caffeinated beverages. Fuze is a good option, but tea and water are best. And lots of it - you burn 200 more calories if you are hydrated, so get to love your tea.
And if that tea lowers blood sugar, so much the better. Green tea, chai tea, ginger tea and so on have very little caffeine, and fill the bill for your hydration schedule.
