Avoiding Coffee for Diabetics?

I have diabetes and a heart condition. Is it I true that I should avoid coffee?

Coffee is probably the most frequently ingested beverage worldwide, and intake of coffee is often reported as a cardiovascular risk factor. However, definite data are lacking. Drinking coffee can increase the blood pressure and heart rate acutely in non-habitual coffee drinkers but this effect is not observed in habitual drinkers. No association between coffee and the risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks or cardiovascular disease has been demonstrated. In fact restriction of coffee is no longer included in the latest American guidelines for hypertension.

Coffee has also recently been shown to reduce the risk of developing diabetes. Caffeine does not seem to affect blood sugar when consumed in moderate amounts.
