    Hi and  welcome 

    You don't need to inform them unless it significantly affects your ability to do  the daily tasks 

    I also have diabetes and the main things it would affecr is taking medication and eating regular 

    Unless you have any long term side effects like sight loss or neuropathy 

    Telling them will start off a new assessment process
