Depending on whether you suffer from type 1 or type 2 the cost of Life Insurance can vary. Due to the related medical issues with type 2, such as unhealthy lifestyles leading to obesity and even a lower life expectancy, insurers may ask for a higher price than what they would charge for a healthy client. Please take note that your doctor or GP may be contacted for a full medical report to determine an accurate price that you should be paying for your Life Insurance based on professional medical advice.

A little bit about Diabetes…
Diabetes is a medical condition where the blood sugar levels become too high because insulin is not making the cells take sugar from the blood. The condition is split between types 1 and 2. Type 1 is caused by the pancreas not producing any insulin at all, whereas type 2 occurs when the pancreas is not producing enough insulin for the levels of sugar or the cells are not accepting the insulin, and thus are not taking in any sugar.
The most common symptoms of diabetes are weight loss, blurred vision, irritated genitals, frequent urination, fatigue, feeling extremely thirsty and having slow healing cuts and grazes.
Vomiting and heavy breathing can also occur at a later stage, you should seek your doctor or another professional medical worker for help immediately if this happens.
The current treatments available for type 1 diabetes give the sufferer the insulin which they are missing in the form of insulin injections or insulin pump therapy. Blood glucose levels need to be monitored closely to ensure that the right level of insulin is being administered to the sufferer. The treatments for type 2 diabetes revolve around lifestyle changes to decrease weight by dieting and exercise which will reduce the level of sugar in the blood. For more information on treatments and a more detailed explanation of diabetes, go to the NHS website or talk to your doctor or GP.
