Is it safe to eat dates while suffering from diabetes?

Yes, in low to moderate amounts. Dates have a low glycemic index, which means they don’t spike your blood sugar levels. In one study, individuals with type 2 diabetes ate three dates a day for 16 weeks. They found that glucose levels did not increase while other biological markers improved!
