It has been said that ‘Excess of anything is bad!’ Hence, my advice is not completely black or white, I recommend eating things in moderation. However, if you are overweight with poorly managed diabetes, there is a list of foods that you must have to deal with the condition and honey is not one of them. Honey is sugar, after all, which would contribute to your blood sugar levels. Hence, I would not suggest additional honey for a diabetic.

Is there a cure for diabetes?

Deeksha Khare says

I think NO. Once you are wedded to the disease you have to live with it. No divorce possible. You should also treat your fiancee properly and if you ignore her, you will get severe punishment ranging from foot ulcer, retinopathy, kidney failure and finally heart attack.

Uncontrolled diabetes causes weight loss. Once you control diabetes with drugs the patient would regain weight. Additionally drugs like Metformin, GLP1Analogues and SGLT2 inhibitors cause weight loss. While drugs like Pioglitazone, Sulphonylurea and Insulin cause weight gain.
