Well, sugar addiction is not recognized by the American Psychological Association as a "real" disorder, so my guess is that most medical professionals don't consider it real. There aren't a lot of treatment programs for sugar addiction, either. I would be tempted to place sugar addiction more in the category of an eating disorder than a drug addiction...what do you think?
Eating sugar definitely results in a biochemical response and you can become dependent on it, so it seems possible that a sugar addiction is a real addiction. Some studies have suggested that sugar may stimulate the same reward systems in the brain as addictive drugs.
