• Diabetes as a disAbility

    From Allen Prunty@1:2320/100 to All on Sat Aug 9 21:20:10 2008
    My cousin is a diabetic and he applied for the TSA as a screener...
    however they put him through so many hoops to try to get a job he just
    gave up on the job.

    The doctor that the TSA sent him to that did his physical made the
    comment... I see no reason why you can't do the job... you are in better condition than any smoker that comes in here but be ready to jump
    through a bunch of hoops.

    They wanted to get statements from every doctor he seen in the past 5
    years.

    Wanted two years of blood sugar readings

    Wanted the doctors to forward two years of all of his medical records.

    Why isn't diabetes a protected disability in the ADA?
