Driving, hypos and coming clean
In 2011 ripples of anger traveled through the diabetic community in the UK when the DVLA announced changes to the driving regulations for diabetics. As a result of the changes, any hypo needing 'assistance' (ambulance attendance, for example) needed to be reported to the DVLA. More than 1 serious incident in a calendar year now results in the suspension of your license. As someone who suffered my own 'serious incident' this year, it is something I have often thought about; would I tell my team if I had another one?
