Early Morning Work With Diabetes

Hello, how are you?

I am a Type 2 diabetic, I work for a major retailer on the early team: I’m replenishing packing the cold chain stock.

I start at work at 5.00am and they won’t let me have anything, not even coffee or tea with sweetener while I’m working. Don’t they know what being diabetic is about? Is there anything that I can do to get them to do the right thing?

Thank you,
