I would tell them the truth answering the questions that were asked. You never want to start off on the wrong foot. While the company can't discriminate, they can say that it would be an undue hardship for them to accommadate your needs. That goes for diabetes and any other issues that may be considered a disability. I have already been down this road and have gotten as far as getting a hire date, the last thing was the drug screening and health questions. At that time, my diabetes was under control but I had also had a stroke.
With today's economy I definitely would fall under the reasonable accomodations or the not a job match column because I have recently been diagnosed with an Autoimmune disease and on oxygen.View Thread
I wouldn't fudge the information, it would be very tempting because it would be dishonest and that's not who I am or the way that I conduct myself. While a company can't discriminate, they can say that it would cause them undue hardship to make the accomadations necessary for you to work for their company and they are within their legal right to say that and its not a voilation of the ADA. I've been down that road already, not only do I have diabetes but I have also been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which makes it difficult for employment beause I'm automatically looked at as a liability. And I have gotten as far as getting a hire date.View Thread
