    In a general response to the above:
    I would think for people with diabetes, dates is not recommended because of the intense sweetness. I would say check with your doctor. I sense all these dried fruits, like figs as well, have concentrated sweet in them which makes the sweetness more intense.

    Another thought I have is: everything in moderation. Not to rely on one thing heavily.

    What comes to mind is maybe 3-pieces of dates maybe enough.

    I am exploring the benefits because someone mentioned it to me about dates. I am going to go to other websites to see what they say.

    Good luck and all the best.

    Dont worry guys, enjoy dates even if you are diabetic. Just drink fenugreek (methi) seeds water which are soked in hot water overnight. Any fruit sugar increases ur sugar level but for short time in an hour it reduces as it is natural sweetness.. i eat lots of dates and when my gf’s hubby is going to business trip i eat more, infact for 4 days continus i boil 8 dates in milk and keep it overnight and then mix that milk with banana and grind them and make a milkshake with a tea spoon of honey… my performance increases so much that she goes wild and from last 5 yrs she does not let me go away from her.. but one important thing dont mastrubate when u eat dates .. try with a women and see how she enjoys…you will be a roman king for her that night..enjoy
