The social security disability attorneys represent North Carolinians who suffer the effects of a variety of illnesses and injuries, including the following:

  • Traumatic injuries such as brain injury
  • Disability conditions such as fibromyalgia or cancer
  • Mental health impairments such as PTSD and bipolar disorder
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fatal illnesses such as cancer, which are perhaps under control but result in ongoing medical complications
  • Chronic health problems such as diabetes mellitus

Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus

People suffering from diabetes mellitus may have no symptoms for a long time. This disease may exist for years before it is diagnosed or before it becomes disabling. Once symptoms begin, they may include the following:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Weight gain
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Frequent infections
  • Nerve damage
  • Red, swollen, tender gums

If your diabetes mellitus is in the early stages, you are encouraged to pursue diagnosis and treatment in hopes of preventing further complications. If it has reached an advanced stage, you may experience pain, numbness and tingling in your hands, arms and legs. The condition can lead to the loss of use of a limb or even amputation. If you are a veteran suffering from diabetes, this may entitle you to additional VA benefits. Let us explore that possibility with you.

Social Security Disability Claim Denials

Your diabetes mellitus may mean that you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, long-term care benefits or other types of available financial support. To schedule a consultation with an attorney regarding your diabetes mellitus and your inability to work because of it, call or email VetLaw.
