Health Insurance for Diabetes

An imbalanced way of living worsened by adulterated consumption is taking a toll on millions of lives yearly. An inactive lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, work pressure, and stress give rise to diabetes, hypertension & high BMI. Without prompt treatment, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension can damage your body's small blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart strokes. However, the treatment cost of diseases caused by high blood sugar, BP, and BMI can burden you with as much as INR 3 lacs yearly. These health barriers often obstruct people from availing themselves of medical plans.

At Care Health Insurance, we aim to lower the financial loss of people with specific pre-existing ailments. We believe your present health status cannot deter you from opting for a health plan to access quality healthcare services at leading network hospitals. We introduce "Care Freedom"- health insurance for diabetes, hypertension, and high BMI. Care Freedom is a unique, sought-after health insurance plan for diabetic people as it provides financial freedom to patients while undergoing expensive treatments and speeds up their recovery.

Know Diabetes and Its Types

Today, India is home to almost 77 million diabetic patients, the second-highest diabetes population globally. Nearly 30% of adults in India suffer from hypertension, and health experts are worried about the alarmingly high number of people unaware of their condition. Diabetes is a disease caused by a high sugar or glucose level in the blood, which can later cause damage to the kidneys, heart, blood vessels, eyes, and nerves. The pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin which breaks down the glucose from the food we consume and helps it to get into our blood cells to be used as energy. Diabetes interferes with insulin production. Low or no insulin production can result in glucose accumulation in the bloodstream, and the inability to use that insulin effectively causes various health problems. There are three most common types of diabetes:

type of diabetes type of diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes

Those who have type 1 diabetes cannot produce insulin in their bodies. Your immune system targets and kills the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas. Although it can develop at any age, type 1 diabetes is typically diagnosed in infants and young people. To stay alive, individuals who have type 1 diabetes must take insulin every day.

Type 2 Diabetes

If you have type 2 diabetes, you may have poor insulin production or usage. Type 2 diabetes can strike anyone at any age, even in infancy. However, those in their middle years and older are most likely to develop this kind of diabetes. The most prevalent kind of diabetes is type 2.

Gestational Diabetes

Some women experience the onset of gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Just after a baby is born, this form of diabetes typically disappears. However, if you have gestational diabetes, your risk of getting type 2 diabetes in the future is higher. Type 2 diabetes can occasionally be detected during pregnancy.

3 Reasons Why You Need Best Health Insurance Plan for Diabetes

Did you know diabetic people are twice more likely to suffer from high blood pressure than non-diabetic people? Various studies show a striking correlation between obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. That's why you need a complete protective shield to take care of all these three ailments before they turn chronic. Besides, below are some undebatable reasons why diabetics health insurance is an essential investment-

Serious Complications Involved

Serious diabetes complications can become a silent killer by pushing patients toward coma or, worse, death. Eating disorders, fatty tissue deposits around body parts, excessive thirst, and frequent urination are early signs that you must treat as early as possible. Hence, medical insurance for diabetes patients is a must to undergo a financially-backed treatment.

Burdening Medication Costs

Although diabetes is considered a less severe and expensive health problem, its treatment expenses can go as high as Rs 20,000 approximately every month. Don't let shooting healthcare costs burn a hole in your pocket when you can arrange for medical funds for these pre-existing illnesses with Care Freedom.

Risk of Other Chronic Diseases

Together, obesity, diabetes, and high BP invite heart stroke, kidney damage, high cholesterol, and gallbladder problems, among other life-threatening diseases. Medical insurance for diabetic patients breaks the vicious chain by providing affordable treatment.

Quick Tip: You need not fret while you age and turn elderly as we ensure to keep you safe under our Care Senior plan specially designed for senior citizens.

Why Should You Compare Pre-existing Disease Health Plans Online?

When buying health covers for yourself or your entire family, it is essential to carefully go through all the benefits and offerings under a given policy. The health condition of every family member may differ, with one being a heart patient to another with weight issues. While comparing health insurance online, you should consider maximum coverage for members with pre-existing diseases.

Especially for obese, diabetic, and high BP patients, it is crucial to compare mediclaims based on all the expenses related to these pre-existing conditions.
