People with diabetes can face workplace discrimination

Most of us in Los Angeles know someone with diabetes or have it ourselves. The number is growing at an alarming rate. The latest government estimate is that 29 million Americans are living with the disease. We don't think of diabetes as something that would cause problems in the workplace. However people with diabetes may face discrimination by employers and co-workers. One endocrinologist says that many people with diabetes hesitate to take the daily steps required to control the disease, such as checking their blood sugar levels, because they fear being stigmatized. Failure to properly manage the disease can be particularly dangerous for people who work in industries like transportation and construction where safety is paramount.
