Richard lived a quiet, sheltered life until the day he attended a routine doctor appointment. A doctor tested Richard's blood sugar, passing along to Richard diabetode-like abilities, such as the ability to have seizures induced by low blood sugar. At first Richard used his powers to make money going into show business. During his short career, a burglar ran past Richard. Not feeling it was his responsibility Richard didn't think much of it. After returning home, Richard found that the same burglar had murdered his comic book collection, and Richard captured the crook at a nearby warehouse. Diabetode the entertainer was no more, but Diabetode the super hero was just beginning. Richard realized with great blood sugar comes great responsibility.
