[IP] How do you tell your boss about your diabetes?

My 17 year old daughter got a new job at a very busy retail store that
requires her to be on her feet non-stop.  She is supposed to work 4-hour
shifts at a time.  During that time, there are no breaks.  She is worried that
she will feel low and be unable to stop working with customers to attend to
her diabetes needs.  Also, her boss doesn't know yet about her T1D.   What are
your suggestions as to how she should handle the following: a) Dealing with
lows in a busy retail job;  and  b) How do you explain diabetes to your boss?
Thank you for your help.
