A sweet little thing,
lots'n lots I have killed,
I have diminished so many,
so many I helped to rebuild.

I have many minions,
but on the top, there are three,
controlled by each other,
they are not so free.

You can't get rid of me,
it's up to me when to bid you adieu,
do not get confused,be warned,
I will surely come for you

No one can stop me,
you are all my slaves,
you all are bound to me,
from your cradle to your graves.

This was in the sandbox, as per suggestions, I tried changing first two stanzas. This one is really simple and sweet one.

Is it

Time

A sweet little thing,
lots'n lots I have killed,
I have diminished so many,
so many I helped to rebuild.

Time can rebuild something, or destroy/kill it.

I have many minions,
but on the top, there are three,
controlled by each other,
they are not so free.

Pretty sure it's the 3 hands of a clock/watch.

You can't get rid of me,
it's up to me when to bid you adieu,
do not get confused,be warned,
I will surely come for you

Time will come to take us to death.

No one can stop me,
you are all my slaves,
you all are bound to me,
from your cradle to your graves.

No one can stop time, and we have no other choice than following it.

My idea

Drugs

A sweet little thing,

lots'n lots I have killed,

I have diminished so many,

so many I helped to rebuild.

Excessive use of Drugs kills people.. Although, if used judiciously can cure people of allergies,etc.

I have many minions,

but on the top, there are three,

controlled by each other,

they are not so free.

Not sure about this... Maybe refers that ther are only a few life-threatening drugs while others might be purely medicinal..

You can't get rid of me,

it's upto me when to bid you adieu,

do not get confused,be warned,

I will surely come for you

People become addicted to drugs, hence, very dangerous.

No one can stop me,

you are all my slaves,

you all are bound to me,

from your cradle to your graves.

We all take medicines since our childhood, which are a sort of drugs as well...

Is the answer

Sugar?

A sweet little thing,
lots'n lots I have killed,
I have diminished so many,
so many I helped to rebuild.

Sugar can cause many diseases, like Diabetes, but it also helps other people with low sugar levels to 'rebuild'. Reference

I have many minions,
but on the top, there are three,
controlled by each other,
they are not so free.

There are many types of sugars, but the main three could be Fractose, Galactose and Glucose or Lactose, Maltose and Sucrose. Reference

You can't get rid of me,
it's upto me when to bid you adieu,
do not get confused,be warned,
I will surely come for you

Not so sure about this one... Maybe we can't get rid of it because almost every food has some sugar in it?

No one can stop me,
you are all my slaves,
you all are bound to me,
from your cradle to your graves.

Sugar causes addiction?
