"This is an interesting topic to discuss. The notion of protecting our child's future insurability is important for us all. Diabetes already got us once, we don't want it to get us again if it can be avoided! There are many different…"

"We use Primerica too. I didn't ask our agent to look into adding our kids to our policy but he did, and they can't be added. We have a term policy, so not sure how that would benefit our kids anyway."

Bad Skin Reaction to Adhesive

Hi all,My daughter has been on the Dex since October 2013, but in the last couple of months she has developed a horrible reaction to the adhesive (I think). Let me preface this by saying that she wears a pod on her arms and legs with no problem (and I use Cavilon skin barrier then Skin Tac and Mastisol under the pod, along with a waterproof 2x4 bandage over it).She wears the sensor at the top of her tush, just below her waistline. She has no fat on her stomach, and since we use arms and legs…See More

Life Insurance for T1D Child?

Hi all,A while back I was at a JDRF event and a parent mentioned that he had gotten life insurance for his child. I would never have thought of this.Does it make sense to buy life insurance for a 6 year old? Of course the ONLY reason to do so now would be to avoid the possibility she might not be able to get it when she's older or she might have to pay exorbitantly for it.Have any of you purchased life insurance for your T1D child (or been able to)? If so, what type and what company?Thanks,…See More
