While many individuals with diabetes are able to work full time without any problems, other individuals who regularly monitor their blood sugars, take oral medications or insulin are not able to control their diabetes, despite their best efforts. Diabetes becomes a disabling condition when it causes muscle, nerve or sensory neuropathy or polyneuropathy, primarily in the legs, causes changes in the bone structure of the feet, nonhealing sores or open wounds in the skin, or significantly impacts the eyes or other organs. If your diabetes has made it impossible for you to work, you may be eligible to collect Social Security Disability benefits. Contact The Law Offices of Sheryl Gandel Mazur to discuss your options.
SSD Benefits For Diabetes in New Jersey
Diabetes is a disease where the body’s blood sugar levels are too high. Symptoms of diabetes include unusual thirst, blurred vision, weight loss, frequent urination and fatigue although some people have no symptoms. Diabetes is diagnosed through blood tests.
Insulin is a naturally occurring hormone that assists the body in getting glucose into the cells. In the case of diabetes, the body either does not make insulin, or does not make or use it adequately. If the body does not make or use insulin appropriately, too much glucose (blood sugar) remains in the blood and can cause damage to organs and nerves including the eyes and kidneys. Diabetes is also a cause of heart disease, stroke and can result in the need for amputation of limb(s) if not treated.
