Q: can a diabetic drink Apple Cider Vinegar with Pure Honey for knee pain?

I have arthritis on my knees & someone told me to take a daily glassful of Apple Cider Vinegar with Pure Honey for the pain but I am diabetic & I don't know if the honey will raise my

blood sugar. Please advise me.

Margaret-

 

Apple Cider Vinegar seems to be fine for diabetic's to drink. People use it to control weight or help lower their fasting blood sugars. Pure honey has a lot of carbohydrates and calories. Honey has more carbohydrates in it than granulated sugar.  It is fine to use honey in your drink but use it in moderation.  I wouldn't use a lot of it because it may cause your blood sugar to spike.  

 

Good luck
