I bring this up because his defense was that his actions were impaired by his diabetes at the time of the accident.

I believe he said that his low blood sugar problem was masked by some drug he was taking and also said that he hadn't eaten at all that day. This last statement would not allow any "sympathy" toward him on my part. All diabetics should know that they must eat regularly. As far as I'm concerned not eating properly is irresponsible behavior that causes consequences.

I am a non insulin taking diabetic and I can get into low blood sugar trouble if I don't eat regularly. Low blood sugar problems are not limited only to the insulin users.

I believe that some states require diabetics to have something to raise blood sugar to be within arms reach when driving.
