Last week I got of work at 9 p.m at night . I drove then don't remember what happened till my head hit the ground badly and got excited that I got awaken found myself in the police car . I remembered it could be hypoglycemia because I am aggressive type 1 diabetic.  I lost blood sugar and went on symptoms like blackout don't remember anything . So, it seemed like somebody phoned the police because I was driving carelessly . Not doing it on purpose of course.  When the police came . They wanted to stop me I couldn't respond.  So , they broke the window to get me out . They thought I am under effect of drugs or alcohol . They put clutches in my hand . They phoned the ambulance . In the ambulance they tested my blood sugar which was too low . My blood test was proven negative for drugs and alcohol .They took the clutches off my hand and released me but scheduled a court hearing for me on November.  Will this affect my naturalization in anyway ? I didn't mean to cause danger . Fortunately no one was hurt . But the police officer told me you should have pulled over once u felt dizzy . It's something he doesn't understand that diabetic not always feel they r getting low . It can just happen to pass out . So will this misaffect my application?

I think most understand

 

Most people with diabetes can drive safely. The exception is if you have a condition called hypoglycemia unawareness, which means low blood sugars hit you out of the blue, with no warning at all. It can be especially dangerous for you to be on the road. If this happens to you, talk to your doctor.

 

you may explain to a judge with a doctor's statement

but you can not explain to insurance company

and this is what Missouri says about driving license and diabetes

 

 

Missouri

There are no questions regarding diabetes specifically. However, the driver’s license application (both first-time and renewal) asks the applicants whether they have experienced various conditions such as convulsions, epilepsy, blackouts, paralysis, heart attack, heart disease, stroke, or other medical conditions within the previous 6 months. If the applicants answer “yes” to any of these questions, they will be required to be interviewed and asked to demonstrate their abilities to operate a motor vehicle safely.

 

So,  get to the doctor and get a note explaining the diabetes issue to the judge and expect bigger insurance premiums and take proper care for your illness, please.  Just be careful as there are so many side effects of having diabetes

What's the misdemeanor charge? The only permanent bars to naturalization are listed in the link below. Every other issue is considered in the context of your history. Make sure you disclose the charge on your application, though, and how it was resolved.
