Hi everyone, this week Matt Rann is back with me and we are talking about type 1 diabetes.

We are chatting about what diabetes is and how it affects the body, the potential complications that someone can experience and the insurance underwriting terms. 

The key takeaways:

  • Type 1 diabetes can affect all areas of the body and there are specific complications that can occur in the heart, eyes, feet and kidneys.
  • The key things that underwriters need to know, to give you a potential indication of terms.
  • A case study of arranging life insurance and income protection, for someone living with type 1 diabetes.

I will be back in a couple of weeks with Alan Knowles. He is back with one of his masterclasses and this time the focus is going to be on critical illness cover.

Remember, if you are listening to this as part of your work, you can claim a CPD certificate on our website.
