Diabetes is a disease in which the body is unable to produce or unable to properly use and store glucose (a form of sugar). Glucose backs up in the bloodstream — causing one’s blood glucose or “sugar” to rise too high. And, as most people know there are 2 types of diabetes: Type 1 – is when the body completely stops producing any insulin, a hormone that enables the body to use glucose found in foods for energy; Type 2 – occurs when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin and/or is unable to use insulin properly (insulin resistance).

They usually have to take oral medication and control their intake of carbs. The restaurant owner, Jay Oh, told Mr. Martin that if he wanted to eat at the all you can eat rate, he’d have to eat the rice too, otherwise he’d be charged a la carte.
