Controlling Your Diabetes at Work

Employee with DiabetesChances are, you know someone with diabetes, you have diabetes or you are at risk for diabetes. Diabetes affects nearly 30 million American adults and children. Another 86 million have prediabetes, which means they are at risk of developing the disease. There is no cure for diabetes, but you can manage it successfully - or prevent it altogether. If you already have diabetes, there are many resources to help you thrive at work and live a longer, healthier life.

Staff Sergeant Mark Thompson convinced the Army that having type-1 diabetes should not keep him from serving in Iraq. Thompson, 28, is an Iowa native. He has been married for nine years and has a son, Kyle, who is two years old. He has always had something of a travel bug, and it was this desire to see the world that inspired Thompson to join the Army. That, and the stories he heard from his college roommate -- an older student who had served in the Vietnam War. As Thompson listened, the Army started to sound like an adventure.
