I wrote an editorial on Diabetes News Hound today about the growing number of car crashes being blamed on diabetes rather than the poor decisions made by the person operating the vehicle, who also happens to have diabetes. I think this is an important topic because driving in the United States is considered a privilege and not a right. Other countries, such as the U.K., place restrictions of drivers that rely on insulin. You can check out the full editorial here: Are You Guilty of Driving While Diabetic?
It also got me to wondering what precautions, if any, you take to lower your risk of having a hypo or hyper glyciemic episode while driving or if this is even a concern?
