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



The Americans with disabilities act requires that she  be allowed to test 
whenever she needs to.

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.
