Alabama Disability Lawyer Shelby County Diabetes

If you or a loved one lives in Shelby County Alabama,* and your application for Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI) or SSI benefits was denied-don't give up-contact an experienced Alabama Disability lawyer.

Diabetes mellitus is a medical problem in which a person's pancreas cannot produce adequate insulin to move glucose from the blood to the cells of the body. Glucose is vital to your body's health because it is an important source of energy for the cells which make up your muscles and tissues. Having diabetes (either type) means that you have too much glucose in your blood, which leads to a buildup in the blood which can lead to serious medical problems.

If you suffer from diabetes, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.  Listing 9.08 of the Code of Federal Regulations states diabetes is disabling when it is accompanied with (i) neuropathy (tingling and numbness in your hands and arms/feet and legs) which causes a significant and persistent problem in the suffers' ability to walk or use their arms; (ii) acidosis (changes in your blood chemistry) at least on the average of once every 2 months as documented by the appropriate blood tests; or (iii) retinitis proliferans (significant visual impairment).

If you live in Shelby County Alabama and have been diagnosed with diabetes and it as prevents you from performing you past relevant work and other employment and you have been denied Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, don't give up; contact the experienced Alabama Disability lawyers at Powell and Denny.
