I heard that if you have diabetes you cannot eat grapes. Is that true and why?

In brief: Not recommended

Grapes are one of the fruits that have a high glycemic index, meaning they make blood sugar rise quickly.
You don't want that to happen in diabetes. You want nice, steady, low and well controlled blood sugars. No peak or troughs.

In brief: Untrue

There is no food that is absolutely forbidden.
But although fruits are better than cookies or candy, they are sweet because of natural sugars, so they can still raise blood sugars. Like everything else, have them in moderation.
