Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry has been released from the hospital after being treated for low blood sugar.

Barry, 76, a diabetic, is home resting following an overnight stay at a Washington hospital earlier this week. A change in his medication to better manage his condition was made.

Meanwhile, Barry encouraged his supporters via his Twitter account to: "change our diets and demand healthier food options in our neighborhoods."
