No, honey is not recommended if you have Diabetes. This is because honey and sugar both affect the blood sugar level. Honey, In fact, has more carbohydrates and more calories per teaspoon if compared with granulated sugar.

The best sweet thing to use if you have diabetes is your sweetener. You can get it form any chemist shop or general store and can use it in a variety of ways, even for making desserts.

No, never. My grandfather was diagnosed the diabetes a few years ago and the doctor recommended Coarse Food Grain and vegetables which low in fat, protein and high in fibre. Sacchariferous food like honey is never recommended. It can deteriorate the patient. Hope it helps a little

Diabetics can take honey as substitute of sugar (without exceeding 2 teaspoons per day).

In addition, diabetics can take honey when they feel they are facing hypoglycemia (to rapidly increase their blood sugar).

As honey is rich in magnesium and potassium, which relax the blood vessels and contributing to lower blood pressure, therefore, those diabetics suffering from heart disease and hypertension can get benefit.

Furthermore, honey contains poly-phenol antioxidants, which play a crucial role in preventing heart disease.

Honey is so sweet, it's as sweet as the sugar, but it has more advantages than sugar, so if someone has diabetics, it's better to take honey than sugar and no more than 2 teas spoons per day.
