Yes: Caffeine can raise blood pressure by up to 10 points in people who don't have caffeine very often. This will lower back to normal when the effects of caffeine wear off. This temporary rise in blood pressure is worse in people who already have high blood pressure. If one consumes caffeine on a regular basis, it may raise blood pressure by a small amount over the long term.

Low=low: You need a normal blood glucose to have energy! if your blood glucose gets too low, you will feel fatigued, shaky, and sometimes nauseated and confused. If you've ever done aerobic exercise without eating enough, and you've had the feeling of "hitting the wall"... That's low blood glucose!
