Yes, try a employer group plan or Mr. Mip. Some carriers will offer individual coverage to an insulin dependent Type 2 diabetic. The rules are fairly stringent and it will generally be at a higher rate but it is not always an automatic decline. Talk to a local agent who specializes in health care. Type 2 diabetics are not insulin dependant. If you happen to be over 65 years of age and on Medicare, you are covered. Type 2 diabetes initially is not insulin dependent but the medications used soon become ineffective and the patient must resort to using insulin. I have been a type 2 diabetic for 20 years and take 3 different types of insulin which controls my blood glucose very well.

If the diabetic takes a proper amount of insulin for the cheerios, or it is easily incorporated into their diet plan, then yes.
