Diabetes: Social Security Disability
Diabetes is a disorder in which the pancreas cannot produce adequate insulin to move glucose from the blood to the cells of the body. Cells do not respond properly to the insulin produced and the glucose builds up in the blood then overflows into the urine and passes out of the body.
If you have diabetes and are unable to work for at least twelve consecutive months, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Call Freedom Disability Services today at (866) 761-5942 for a free evaluation with one of our professional Advocates. Our Advocates can help determine if your condition is likely to result in a successful SSDI application. If you do qualify, we can provide you with the assistance that you need to get the benefits that you deserve. If you have previously been denied benefits, but feel your condition makes you eligible, contact us today at (866) 761-5942.
