Hello everyone. I am a fit 37 year old who is needing life insurance for mortgage purposes.
Last May I was diagnosed with ET following tummy ache which originated from a slightly enlarged spleen. My platelets are consistently high (around 1350) but I am generally very well and just take 75mg aspirin per day to prevent clotting.
I am happy to say I am text book when it comes to looking after myself I am not overweight, I don't smoke, I eat very healthily, I drink alcohol in moderation and exercise 5 times a week. With this taken in to consideration, my hematologist deems me as low risk and monitors me quarterly. Unfortunately, insurance companies think otherwise and I have been refused by 4 mainstream insurers as they do not believe my condition is controlled effectively.
Has anybody else had this experience or can anybody recommend any companies to try? Travel insurance is fine for me and it has been accepted by my provider as an existing condition with a marginal increase in premium. All very frustrating
