    Dispatchers and Diabetes?

    Hey guys, I'm a 15K hour Military, Major Airline, and Corporate Pilot with multiple type ratings. After many years of flying on waivers for Type 2 Diabetes I finally had to go on meds I can't fly with. Very unlikely I'll be able to return to flying. Luckily I have good Loss of Medical plans so will do OK money wise but I'd like to find something where I can use my experience. I've got an app in for Sim Instructor but have no CFI time so that's a long shot. I've been researching Dispatch jobs and can't find any requirement for a FAA Medical. If I should go on a once daily insulin shot would that be a problem for working as a Dispatcher?

    Thanks

    Sorry for the late reply as no one really follows this forum anymore. You can be diabetic and be a dispatcher as well.

    Is having diabetes something you'd have to reveal in an interview ?
