I applied for life insurance at the age of 32, when I was pregnant with my son. Up until that time, I had a policy through my employer which seemed like enough for me. After I got pregnant, I decided that I would not go back to work for a few years and thus began the search for a policy. It had been 14 years since my diagnosis (similar to you, lcgiffin87).
I was advised by a friend who sold life insurance that during my pregnancy would be an ideal to purchase a policy. My A1c was in range and any weight increase could be attributed to pregnancy (I was about 6 months along at the time). I was approved with a reasonable premium, although higher than had I not had diabetes. It was explained to me that diabetes would always be a factor in premium, despite how healthy I was, or lack of of complications, etc.
I would encourage you to reach out to a few insurance specialists and explain the situation. You will definitely need to have a medical exam, and diabetes will come up, but perhaps an agent would have ideas on how to maneuver these challenges. Good luck!
