Question: I am a diabetic. Can I take a table spoon of pure honey daily?

03 March 2010

Answer: Honey is still considered as calories, and must be included in the calorie count. However, there are claims that honey is good for diabetes as it is not absorbed as fast as sugar, but the evidence is not strong. The current advice is to treat honey as any form of sugar.

Diabetes Malaysia (formerly known as Persatuan Diabetes Malaysia) gives advice in good faith based on the limited information supplied by the questioner. It is no way responsible for any unintended consequences arising from such advice. All patients should be examined by a physician or specialist before undertaking any investigation or treatment.
