you should be able to keep your CDL with Diabetes under certain conditions
by: Anonymous

It depends on the type of diabetes and if it is under control. If you have type 2 it can be controlled with prescription drugs, diet and exersize.

Also you need to keep you A1 C less than 8. You should check with your Dr and with your state, most have a website that has rules posted. You should also check out the American Diabetes Associations website. It has a wealth of info on your rights. But you shouldn't lose your cdl as long as you take care of yourself.
