Disability Benefits for Diabetes
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from Diabetes?
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which causes blood glucose levels to rise to dangerously high levels. Serious problems from high levels of glucose, or sugar, include damage to the eyes, kidneys, or nerves. People suffering from diabetes may experience the following: excessive appetite, increased urination, dry mouth, slow healing sores, skin irritation, blurred vision, nausea, fatigue, and changes in weight. More than 15 million Americans suffer from either Type I or Type II Diabetes.
Social Security looks at how diabetes affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a consistent basis. Social Security will consider the nature and extent of your diabetes, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will also assess further limitations that your diabetes might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
