Hello I understand your condition. I also appreciate your concern towards her. But I would like to tell you intake of sugar is not measured in milligrams but in calories. So the food you take in will be in the firm of carbohydrates and each carbohydrates contain 2 calories so sugar has carbohydrates. It is better to avoid sugar and sweets. It is better if she takes less than 14 kilo calls a day and replace everything with protein. Consult your doctor today. Thank you
