I read a post from someone on here about losing their job because of their diabetes - or because they were out of work because of their diabetes.

Employers better read up on the American with Disabilities Act, especially in regard to Diabetes. We are now a protected lot in America.

This is great. Something we should all print off and keep handy in the work place. I am not saying that a diabetic should be allowed to do every kind of job, but there are certainly many things we can do and should not be discriminated against.
