Help with 19 year old diabetic ADHD son

My son is a 19 year old type 1 diabetic, with ADHD, Bulemia, and what the schools classified as LD. I am having trouble finding a doctor to say that he is Disabled. Does anyone know who I can talk to. His diabetes along with the other problems is sure to kill him if something isn't done. He has been in the intensive care unit 4 times in the past three months. HELP !!!!!

my step daughter is 19 years old today. she has diabetes, bi-polar, adhd,depression,anxiety and neuropathy. she has been in and out of the hosp. so many times. the insurance co. is the only one that could tell you how many times she has been in there. she has also had psychiatric help, i don't know how many times. the psychiatric, or mental places just keep her up to a week. that does not work for her. does anyone have any idea of how to get some good help?
