Hello Anon

Thank you for working.

There is no such thing as "diet sugar". Do you mean sugar substitutes/artificial sweeteners?

A diabetic should not take artificial sweeteners but there are some natural substitutes like stevia, which is marketed under several names like Truvia and PureVia. However, they can be highly processed - you should talk to your doctor about taking them.
