Driving with type one diabetes

yes you should people will do anything to lay blame elsewhere especially in todays society I have bought one for myself from Walmart for under $40 I would advise anyone to get one it will keep you out of trouble and keep your insurance rates from skyrocketing from a incident otherwise if you get in a accident or whatever all the cops can do is a investigation and do what the math say and if your in a state that requires you to do extra work so you can get a license because of your diabetes definitely get one it cant hurt to have added protection

Medtronic Care is available 24/7 for 670 Users. You should have been assigned a case manager as part of the Priority Access program. You should also download the app, which allows real-time communication.

You do not need a dash CAM. Who is telling you this? Check your blood before getting behind the wheel. Have a low blood sugar kit made that you can keep in the car. Check on long drives. Dont get a dash cam

This is incorrect!! In CA they require the letters, etc, only if your check the ‘Yes’ box asking if you have a condition that affects your ability to drive safely?
After the question the DMV lists several conditions which could affect your ability to drive safely, eg, alcoholism, epilepsy and diabetes. These are only examples of conditions that may affect one’s ability to drive safely. An alcoholic who only drinks at home and doesn’t get behind the wheel when they’ve been drinking is not allowing their condition to affect their ability to drive safely. A PWD who is managing their BGs & not having lows while they’re driving doesn’t have a condition that affects their ability to drive safely.
People mistakenly mark ‘Yes’ thinking the DMV is asking if they have diabetes.
The DMV CANNOT ask you if you have diabetes. It is against the Americans with Disabilities Act.

I hope this helps!
