    Hi all,

    Wondering if someone can help and advise with an issue I have been having.

    I am a type 1 diabetic since the age of 23 years old. I am looking into life insurance as ive recently became self employed and no longer have any cover through a company. I am now 48 years old and having major issues.

    I keep being turned down for life insurance once they've received my medical history report (don't know why!) and finding it really difficult to obtain!

    Please can someone help/advise the best place or people to contact.
