When Does Diabetes Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits?

Diabetes is a serious medical condition. It affects about 25 million Americans. Diabetes can often remain well-controlled with the help of insulin and other medications. But for others it can cause some very serious symptoms that can be disrupting in the workplace.

If you suffer from diabetes you may be experiencing fatigue, pain, or weakness and numbness in your hands or feet. Some people with diabetes have other severe conditions like vision problems that can result in blindness, frequent infections, or diabetic ulcers. These symptoms can make it difficult to work 8 hours a day 5 days a week.

In order to qualify for disability you will need to show how these symptoms prevent you from working and your problems resulting from diabetes must have lasted or are expected to last for at least 12 months.
