Alabama Disability Attorney HOMEWOOD: Brittle Diabetes.

Generally, it is difficult for person to be approved on a diagnosis of diabetes alone as medical treatment often allows a person to have a health and productive life, but this is not the case for those who suffer from brittle diabetes (aka labile diabetes). Brittle diabetes is a term used to describe uncontrolled type 1 diabetes where the sufferer frequently experiences large swings in their blood sugar levels, causing hypoglycemia and/or hyperglycemia.

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a condition which persons suffering with labile diabetes are familiar. People with type 1 diabetes do not have enough insulin in their body, which causes the body to break down fat instead of sugar. As the fats are broken down, acids called ketones build up in the blood stream, and this is called ketoacidosis. In high levels, ketones are poisonous and can lead to frequent hospitalizations, and working on a regular, full time basis is extremely difficult to do as the frequent sickness leads to missing too much time from work for most employers.

There is no cure for labile diabetes.

If you or a loved one lives in Homewood, AL (or anywhere in Jefferson County*), you are suffering from Brittle Diabetes and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to tackle the Social Security Administration alone.
