Type 2 diabetes is classed as a pre-existing medical condition. Once diagnosed, a person usually has the condition for the rest of their life. Type 2 diabetes occurs when a person's blood sugar levels become too high. Levels of insulin, the hormone that regulates the amount of sugar that is present in our blood, become too low. As we digest food, insulin from the pancreas moves glucose (which gives us energy) out of our bloodstream and into cells. People with type 2 diabetes are not able to break down glucose because of a lack of insulin in their body.

A person with type 2 diabetes typically won't be able to produce enough insulin naturally. It is the most common form of diabetes, with over 90% of sufferers having type 2 over type 1. People with type 2 diabetes need to make diet and lifestyle changes in order to regulate their insulin levels. This includes managing their weight and sugar intake, frequently exercising and taking medications to keep blood sugar levels balanced (such as statins).

Type 2 diabetes is a common pre-existing medical condition, and is commonly accepted by many insurers. Fill in our simple 30-second form to compare quotes for type 2 diabetes life insurance from our approved network of impaired insurance specialists.

Many insurers consider type 2 diabetes to be a pre-existing medical condition. Generally speaking, if you have a pre-existing condition, you should expect to pay higher premiums than a person with no health conditions at all. Premium costs will however depend on your current health, whether you are overweight, the medications you take to control your type 2 diabetes, whether you smoke or drink heavily, and whether you have had any associated health complications as a result of your type 2 diabetes (such as heart disease or stroke).

Prices from insurers will vary, which is why iLL's matching service is the best way to find the right type 2 diabetes life insurance specialist.

You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if you have had health complications linked to your type 2 diabetes such as a heart attack, stroke or heart disease, or if you have not made adequate diet and lifestyle changes to control your symptoms, you may be of higher risk to an insurer. A loading fee may therefore be applied to cover your level of risk.
