    Hello I am Tina 
    'I have completed the PIP process and it is quite an ordeal. Regarding the mobility they will contact your gp and other relevant professionals, they will watch your mobility when you go for the assessment, there are two elements to the PIP one is for personal help required, the second is for mobility. I am unsure about diabetes but I am sure some one will reply to you soon

    Hello @meddaboy and welcome to the community.

    If the difficulties you have are due to your diabetes then this should be mentioned, as should any medical condition. However PIP is less interested in actual conditions and more interested in how they affect your daily life.

    You can find more information about PIP and how it is scored at https://www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/personal-independence-payment-pip/pip-points-system

    As an individual I stood alone.
