a Diabetic person is prohibited to eat foods rich in too much glucose, my mother is one of them, but then im glad that she's controlling her diet.Now, what else can a diabetic person eat to satisfy what they are craving for?

It depends on what she is craving. Diabetics should avoid "concentrated sweets" and too many fats. They do well with lots of vegetables, lean meats and whole grain high fiber foods. If they add sweeteners to anything the stevia plant is a good sweetener. Good choices would be brown rice instead of white, and vegetables over fruits, but some of everything is good. Processed sweets in only moderation.
