I have Low Rate DLA care which has been in pay for about 19 years now. I have had diabetes for the last 10 years which I cannot get under control and as a result have more health problems which I feel would qualify me middle rate care. I know I run the risk of losing my lower rate by reporting my new problems but think it is time to try. Should I fill in a new application form or do I need to telephone them to report a change. Also will it matter I have left it for about a year to ask for the change, I have been under eating disorder clinic and psycology clinic and have not felt well enough to approach them knowing the anxiety levels it causes.
