Diabetics have to control carbohydrate intake- just because honey does 
not have sugar- does not mean it doesn't have carbohydrates. Check the 
nutrition contents list if possible. Diabetics can eat carbs including 
sugar- just not too much. So if they want pie, they need to take a small 
slice and perhaps skip potatoes, corn, stuffing or bread.
