Need assist: driving law and hypoglycemic reactions. Help, Diabetes Educators!

  1. Hi. I am the RN consultant with the WI Dept. of Transportation. We're seeing a big increase in diabetics having accidents due to hypoglycemic events. I am trying to head off any disease specific law changes but need some guidelines as to how we can tease out the "non-compliant" or uncontrolled diabetic from the rest of the over 200,000 diabetics in my state. I am afraid if I cannot come up with a plan we'll get legislation which probably won't help.

    If you work in diabetes management and have some insight, I'd love to hear! We're open to the ideas of other states. Respond here or to me at :
