Can diabetic patients consume honey?

It is possible, however it is best consumed with doctor’s guidance. 

Honey has a lower glycemic index compared to cane sugar due to its natural glucose and fructose content. Honey also contains complex carbohydrates which are complex to break down, and thus it is possible for body glucose level not to suddenly spike, as what sugar usually causes. Thus it is possible for diabteic patients to consume honey as long as it goes along with doctor’s consultation.
