Diabetes and Your Social Security Disability Claim | Lakeland Social Security Disability Attorney

Do you suffer from diabetes mellitus that interferes with your ability to work? The Social Security Disability Administration recognizes diabetes as the basis for a Social Security disability claim.

Section 9.08 Diabetes Mellitus of the Listing of Impairments requires that you submit medical documentation:

A. Neuropathy demonstrated by significant and persistent disorganization of motor function in two extremities, resulting in sustained disturbance of gross and dexterous movements, or gait and station;

B. Acidosis occurring at least on the average of once every two months, documented by appropriate blood chemical tests;

C. Retinitis proliferans

Winning a Social Security Disability claim based on diabetes requires extensive medical documentation.  If you need assistance with your Social Security claim, contact St. Petersburg Social Security disability lawyers, Sharon Barrett or Nancy Cavey. They have extensive experience in handling Social Security disability claims for diabetics and have written the go to book for Social Security Disability applicants, “Your Rights to Social Security Disability.”
