If you suffer from diabetes complications and can’t work, please read on, then contact one of our skilled nation-wide LTD benefits lawyers to learn if a diabetic can get long term disability benefits.

Are you entitled to long term disability benefits if you are diabetic?

It is an unfortunate reality that not everyone with diabetes will automatically qualify for long term disability benefits. You should speak with a competent attorney who can assess your circumstances and begin the process on your behalf if you believe you are entitled to long term disability benefits due to your diabetes. So long as you prove you can no longer work because of complications from diabetes, you may be entitled to LTD benefits for either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes mellitus. But you are probably not aware of what it takes to prove your ailment has caused you to be disabled.

How does a diabetic know they qualify for long term disability benefits?

The symptoms of diabetes can be debilitating even if you try to control it through treatment. Managing insulin can be a tricky and imprecise business. As such, through no intention or fault of your own, you may now suffer from the following disabling health conditions:

  • Diabetic retinopathy (Impaired vision or blindness)
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetic coma
  • Amputation
