Diabetes TPD Claims in Australia

TPD claims are possible if you had insurance through your super policy

Help is out there for Australians who suffer from diabetes.

Super Claims Assist are ready to help with your Diabetes TPD Claim. Australians who’ve won their TPD claim received a lump-sum payment from their superannuation insurance. This really helps while you are unable to work due to your diabetes. It doesn’t matter if your diabetes is type one or type two, what matters is if it forced you out of work.

The symptoms, medical appointments, side-effects of medication force many Australians to stop working. If you are unable to work, you may be eligible for a lump sum insurance payout.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease that describes the body’s difficulty in converting glucose into energy. Glucose is a type of sugar whose levels are controlled by the hormone insulin. There are two main types of diabetes, type one and type two.

  • Type one diabetes: your body’s immune system starts to break down the cells that produce insulin – an autoimmune disease
  • Type two diabetes: occurs when the body’s cells lose the ability to produce insulin or do not respond effectively to insulin. 

There are many ways to manage diabetes but the symptoms associated with diabetes make everyday life more difficult and can influence work.

What symptoms do Australians with Diabetes live with?

Some common symptoms include: 

  • excessive thirst or hunger
  • passing more urine than usual
  • feeling tired and lethargic
  • unexplained weight loss (for type 1), or gradual weight gain (for type 2)
  • having cuts that heal slowly
  • itchy skin or skin infections
  • blurred vision

Type 1 Diabetes is usually caught in childhood because of the sudden symptoms that occur. 

Type 2 Diabetes is harder to recognize and can sometimes have unnoticed signs or no apparent symptoms. 

Diabetes can affect people differently. This is only a small range of symptoms that individuals may face.

What help is available for diabetics in Australia?

Diabetes treatments will differ by what type of diabetes you have been diagnosed with. For Type 1, you will need insulin replacement, to help control glucose levels. For Type 2, the first treatment is lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and increased activity. After some time with diabetes, you will likely have to start taking medication to control glucose levels. 

A crucial part of treatment for both types is blood glucose monitoring to determine how different foods affect your glucose level. Though treatments are available, the financial costs of living with an illness can be tough to deal with when you’re focussed on monitoring your glucose and ensuring you have enough to set aside for your insulin. Super Claims Assist can help explain TPD insurance and if you may be eligible for this through your super fund.
