I would seek the advice of your doctor before indulging in something you are skeptical about. A phone call to his or her office is probably all that is necessary. That just seems to make sense to me.

It's not for me, I was being asked by some of the people I work with who have diabeteic family members.
Did respond with the same advice about asking a doctor first.

There are many different diabetics. Some can, some can't.

I once had a customer who bought 10 gallon of honey from me every year. He and his wife both were diabetics. They could eat all the honey they wanted, but were not allowed even a teaspoon of sugar.

My friend took insulin shots every day of his life from 7 years old till he died at 64. He kept bees and ate honey all his life.

I know other diabetics who say they cannot eat honey.

As said above, have them ask their doctor.

My dad is a diabetic and uses my honey to sweeten his coffee without any bad effects. But as others have said, he got it approved by his doctor first.
