My Cousin is Sugar Addict?

Patient

Q: Hello. I have a cousin which is 12 years old. He LOVES sweet things (honey, chocolate, caramel, ice cream, etc), but he rarely eat sweet food (cookies, cakes, etc). He's underweight and rarely eats. He can't eat food normally if he doesn't put some sugar in it, and I mean ALL KIND OF FOOD. He puts sugar to red meat, chicken, vegetables, rices, chocolate milk, pizza, french fries, etc. He also drinks a 'shake that he made up, which contains chocolate milk, sugar, honey, ice cream, milk power.

I'm just curious if there is a condition for him. I have been searching and the closest thing that I could find is sugar addiction. But I read that these people loves crave sweet things, and I'm not sure they can't eat red meat without sugar.
Thanks.
