If you are an FMCSA covered driver having diabetes mellitus (DM) requiring insulin for treatment, you must present with the MCSA-5870 form completed in its entirety by your treating physician/clinician. This form requires you to have maintained at least the preceding three months of ongoing blood glucose self-monitoring records that are measured with an electronic glucometer that stores all readings, records the date and time of readings, and from which data can be electronically downloaded. We strongly urge you to review the FMCSA website for further direction. The rules provide for a possible one-time maximum three-month certification to gain such compliance.
