Diabetes should not fall under ada guideliness unless the complications have taken you there, .

In brief: Case by case

In general, diabetes is a disability under the ada when it limits one or more of a person's major life activities, has done so in the past, or a person with diabetes is being discriminated against with the assumption that they cannot perform certain activities.
