A type 2 diabetes diagnosis can feel overwhelming, to say the least.
And while many of us may have a general idea of what this disease is, there’s a lot of misunderstanding surrounding what it means for the future for a person newly diagnosed with diabetes, and their families.
Diabetes in Australia is our fastest growing chronic condition
The onset of Type 1 Diabetes mellitus (T1DM) occurs most frequently in people under 30 years, however, new research suggests almost half of all people who develop the condition are diagnosed over the age of 30.
Each day 280 Australians develop diabetes:
- 56% are males
- 44% are females
Managing diabetes can be a challenge: getting life insurance at the same time can feel overwhelming
Diabetes is Australia's fastest growing chronic health condition with 280 Australians developing this condition every day. (That's one person every five minutes)
People living with a pre-existing health condition like diabetes, statistically speaking have a higher risk of needing to make a claim on their personal insurance policy.
Add to this constantly changing assessment standards for getting insurance cover, and finding a life insurance specialist who understand your situation can feel near impossible.

The Diabetes Dilemma & Life Insurance
Did you know the fastest growing chronic health condition in Australia, can be prevented?
November 14 is World Diabetes Day and we believe that everyone needs to better understand this growing health condition.
Life Insurances are important financial tools that help us manage the ups and downs of life, love and business. It's an easy way to safeguard our unpredictable futures, just in case.
But delaying important decisions and continually 'waiting for a convenient time' to get these important parts of life in place - is a risk as we all over time can become uninsurable for a variety of reasons.
But some health conditions can be unexpected, unpredictable and then uninsurable - and that can create a significant equally unexpected problem for many people.
