Your Health :: Diabetes

Diabetics who take insulin should not drive when there is any chance of an insulin reaction, blackout, convulsion, or shock. This could result from skipping a meal or snack, or from taking the wrong amount of insulin.

You should also consider having someone else drive for you during times when your doctor is adjusting your insulin dosage.

If you have diabetes, you should have your eyes checked regularly for possible night blindness or other vision problems.
