    I am currently flying to serve with a major UK airline with type 1 diabetes and I started in April this year. Apart from having a medical post offer before starting training there have been no issues with offering me a permanent position. I am pleased to say the assessing Dr was extremely knowledgeable and supportive. I have done DAFNE and made sure I understood how to keep levels relatively consistent with time zone changes etc which was basically what the medical was all about. I really hope you are successful at next try as it's the most amazing job and actually I think it helps keep my levels more stable with all the physical activity and walking!!
