Diabetes Awareness Week
This week is Diabetes awareness week. As you can see from the figures, this is a condition which unfortunately effects a large number of us and the figures are continuously growing. Diabetes UK have stated the statistics are now showing 1 in 10 people over the age of 40 being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. To find out more information on the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, what the symptoms are and the treatments involved, please visit:
Although Diabetes is not seen as a critical illness, a lot of the Insurance Providers now offer some form of cover through their critical illness cover for diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes (normally up to 50% of the cover amount as an additional payment). It is important however to have cover in place prior to any indication of such diagnosis for a claim to be valid. This is why critical illness cover is so important to put in place earlier rather than later.
