Hi Sarah

I have altered the title of your e-mail as you will get more responses.

 

As others have said the DVLA requires 2 hourly readings for insulin dependent drivers. For the non-insulin diabetics it will depend on how effectively their condition is controlled, individual assessment and if not considered safe a control measure such as regular blood monitoring may be necessary.

 

See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/at-a-glance

Hello All

 

Happy New Year to all.

 

My question is do any of you request  that diabetic employees  carry out regular blood sugar readings at work if they are driving trucks regularly. If so is this just for insulin dependent or for tablet controlled as well?  I am carrying out medicals for employees who drive trucks all shift long.

 

I look forward to your responses.

 

Many Thanks for your help with this matter

 

Best regards,
