Hello
Some people are sensitive to fluctuations in blood sugar
This is good because coffee alone for breakfast will raise blood sugar and then drop it.
Eat some protein when you have the coffee
Or some complex carb such as whole grain not cereal.

Have your fasting blood sugar checked once by your doctor
and your tSH which screens for thyroid imbalance.
good luck
