Online commenter says 1 g sugar in recipe is too high for diabetics

An online reader comments that a recipe for pickled eggs is “high carb, not good for diabetics”…

The brine is made with reduced-sodium soy sauce, mirin, sake and sugar, and only a small amount is absorbed into each boiled egg. The brine mostly adds flavor. The recipe analysis per serving/egg shows 7 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar/carb (half of that comes from the egg!), which is very little sugar/carb. That’s much less than in a slice of bread or a couple spoonfuls of plain yogurt. Also, sugar does not cause diabetes. That is old misinformation. When eating the recommended balanced, moderate-calorie diet with carbs, protein, fat and fiber, some sugar is perfectly fine.
