Bring a note from your doctor saying that you have diabetes and will 
need to bring Bg meter, snacks, juice, and anything else necessary. 
Explain the situation to them (you'll need to be able to check your 
Bg as often as necessary, and eat candy or drink juice if you need to 
bring up a low.  If they have a problem with any of these things they 
will let you know.

Hypoglycemic unawareness is the most troubling aspect, as there is a 
possibility you might miss or misunderstand part of the trial due to 
low blood sugar.  If you want to be on a jury it is up to you to 
prevent this from happening.
