People with diabetes often wonder whether they will be able to bring diabetes supplies into places like theaters, stadiums, and court houses, take their supplies through airport security, or fully participate in private and government programs.
People with diabetes have the right to participate fully in our society without sacrificing their medical safety or facing discrimination because of misunderstandings, fears, and stereotypes about diabetes.
Federal laws prohibit most public places and programs—whether operated by private companies, non-profit organizations, or the government—from discriminating against people with diabetes.
This means that you should be provided with services that are not any different from those provided to people without disabilities. You should not be screened out or excluded because of your diabetes.
Most public and private entities must modify their policies and provide reasonable accommodations as long as doing so does not pose an undue burden.
