Diabetes

Social Security Benefits for Diabetes

Diabetes can be a devastating illness. From pain and numbness to loss of vision, there are many ways in which it can be a disabling condition. If you are no longer able to work because of your diabetes, an experienced lawyer can help you get the benefits you deserve. At MySocialSecurityClaim.com, our attorneys are completely dedicated to helping clients with SSD and SSI claims. We are here to make the process as simple as possible.

Since diabetes is fairly common, it is often difficult to recognize the ways in which it can prevent someone from working. You must be able to demonstrate to the Social Security Administration how it affects you on a day to day basis, and how it prevents you from doing your job. Simply having diabetes is not enough.

If you have a serious diabetes problem or your diabetes is not under control, it can result in a number of disabling conditions. Long-term diabetes can also cause complications, even when you have done everything possible to keep it under control. Diabetes can result in the following disabling conditions:

  • Loss of vision
  • Loss of kidney function
  • Pain
  • Coordination problems
  • Numbness

Since it can be difficult to properly demonstrate the overall impact of diabetes on your ability to work, it is important to properly document your illness. We will work with your doctors and other medical experts who can help us show the Social Security Administration how you are unable to work as a result of diabetes.
