Re: [IP] is diabetes considered to be a disability

As for school age children and those adults in school as well, diabetes is 
considered a disability and you are able to have special arrangements made 
for taking tests and what-not while in the school setting.  There may be some 
professions that would also required special circumstances, ie: being given 
time to eat a special snack, check BGs, do injections or whatever.  So, even 
though you might not consider yourself 'disabled' there may be certain 
circumstances that do require special consideration.
