If you wish to qualify for The SG, on activity 8, as wriiten in my previous post, you need to provide evidence from your G.P., Practice Nurse etc, that you suffer those limitations at least once a week.
You could also consider mentioning any "Risk" that may be involved regarding your Diabetes through not being able to eat properly if you are going out, under ESA Reg 35. Of course there is no guarantee that you would qualify under this, but ESA Reg 35 can be useful as a back up to any functional descriptors.
Again, you would need to provide evidence of any "Risk".

Good luck, and please keep us updated.
