Just having returned from a week in Jamaica thinking to escape one of my greatest passions about life insurance, diabetes, the more a I got whacked up side the head with the fact that it seems to epidemic everywhere.
Turns out Jamaica has a real problem with juvenile type 2 diabetes. Kind of interesting since the normal contributing factors present in type 2 diabetes really aren’t readily apparent in the Jamaican culture. Turns out the childhood obesity is the culprit, not unlike the US. Just not something one would expect.
Bottom line. Anyone, Jamaican or otherwise, who slips into bad eating and exercise habits can put themselves at risk for diabetes. As with coronary artery disease, the additional stress on the body can cause collateral health issues.
Then we’re back to talking about how to do all the right things, not just to take care of yourself, but also to find affordable life insurance. Remember, all the information you can possibly get is not too much when you visit with an independent life insurance agent. You get a grip on what you need to do to take care of yourself and let the agent help you get a grip on how to take care of your life insurance needs.
This post is somewhat dated. Life insurance underwriting is changing and evolving continually. For more updated information check out some of the key word links. If you have a specific question or topic you need information for do a search. If you don’t find the answers you need contact me and we’ll make sure you get the information that is important to you.
I think your notes on Jamaican health are very interesting. I was recently in Spain and was also shocked to find out that obesity and diabetes are becoming a huge problem there as well. This isn’t just an issue Americans are fighting – the world isn’t that big anymore and it seems we are facing the more and more of the same battles across the globe.
