Yes honey can definitely make one diabetic if its eaten too much. Whether sugar or honey, it should be taken in a resonable proportion. Anything excess can do damage. Usually diabetic patients are advised not to eat honey or sugar. They are also advised to avoid special fruits likes grapes and banana. So you see even fructose is not safe. Its a type of sugar and it can also be detrimental if taken too much. Apple is safe for diabetic patients.

hi, i think yes. since it has a much sweeter content in it, when consumed regularly it may cause to increase the sugar level in the body. it is always better to consume it in correct proportions. it is said that Too much of anything is good for nothing. happy mylotting!

This is from my personal experience as I am diabetic. I had read and even done an article on the benefits of "raw" honey (not processed honey - that is no better for you than white sugar). Their are a lot of health benefits in eating raw honey. You may have to purchase it at your health food store. I was thinking that it might be okay for me to eat raw honey with all of it's good benefits. However, my blood sugar soured after eating it, so I would say that it is not good for diabetics. I don't think raw honey could make you a diabetic, but as others have said you should eat it in moderation like anything else. If you are not diabetic, I would think it would be a good food to sweaten toast or biscuits with rather than sugar laden jams and jellies.

if you get real honey that comes from bees (not the stuff that has sugar in it) it is much better for you than regular sugar. Although if you have enough it will still elevate your sugar levels. But it is ok in larger amounts than sugar for diabetics.

I don't think it would, the sugar in it is different in composition, isn't it honey is a healthier alternative for sugar?

Interesting question! I don't believe all natural honey will make you diabetic. I believe you become diabetic when you are eating too many man-made products containing sugars. Natural sugars are completely different than porcessed sugar and it's the processed sugar (and the other added chemicals that are added) that help to cause diabetes. Ask people who are in their 50s or 60s if diabetes was as common 2 or 3 decades ago and they will most likely tell you no. Thirty years ago many people didn't even know anyone that had diabetes, but now who doesn't know someone with it. It's now a common illness and one that could probably be cured with an overhaul of the person's diet...but that might be a subject for another thread. Natural honey and organically grown fruit will probably not be the cause of diabetes. It's the man-made products that can cause the disease to set in. Too many of the foods we eat are filled with chemicals that we shouldn't be eating. When we ingest these chemicals, they cause our bodies to fill with toxins that are gradually poisoning us and causing to get sick easier and allowing diseases to form. These toxins slow our bodies down, making us tired and sluggish and affect the way our bodies absorb nutrients and even slow down the process of how we pass the unwanted food. Ask your doctor if this is true, ask them if a disease like diabetes can be avoided. They will either avoid the question, not give you a straight answer or if they are very good at what they do (which means your health is in their best intrests) they will answer you honestly. I don't believe you can get diabetes by eating an all-natural diet. It's the chemicals in process foods that weaken our bodies and allow illnesses and diseases to harm us. And I believe any good medical physician would agree.
