Last week I mentioned in a post that there seemed to be something of an epidemic of adult onset type 1 diabetes, a hybrid of sorts that is starting to pick up steam under the new name type 1.5 diabetes.

Here in Colorado, outside of our small epidemic, diabetes was brought to the forefront the other day when the Broncos starting quarterback, Jay Cutler, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (or type 1.5) at the age of 25.

I know it happens more frequently than I’m probably aware, but there is something that just gives you one of those think twice moments when a young adult who is doing all the right things is diagnosed with a manageable, but serious illness.

Bottom line. Life insurance is available at fair rates for those with diabetes, whether type 1, 1.5 or 2 as long as it is well controlled. Check with your independent agent about it today.
