    Diabetes and working as a police officer

    I'm asking this for a friend of mine.

    If someone were to have diabetes, would they still be able to work as a police officer? Specifically, in states such as Montana.

    SL,
    Have your friend join in the fun on the forun. We don't bite TOO much.
    Anyone would need way more information about your friend's situation before making even a guess. And even then that is all it would be.
    Stable or Unstable? Type 1 or Type 2? How long since last hypoglycemic episode? How does their activity level effect their glucose level? Do they monitor? How often? etc. etc. etc. At the end of the day, only their physician can say whether they are medically qualified for the job. There is no LE position that I know of or have heard of that has Diabetes as an outright bar to employment.

    Thanks! I didn't actually think about telling him about the site... I'll tell him though.
