Usually, in the past life insurance companies would not offer life insurance to people who have diabetes. However, some life insurance companies do now offer life insurance coverage to people who have diabetes.
Whether or not you are accepted for coverage may depend on the type of diabetes, how the diabetes is managed, the medication you are taking, how you manage your diet and your health. Your age and height-to-weight ratio may also have an impact on your acceptance for diabetes life insurance.
