Unstable angina, prostate cancer, diabetic type 2. Do I have grounds to claim DLA?

Had an heart attack and stent fitted 8 years ago. I now have unstable angina . Other health conditions are prostate cancer and I am diabetic type 2 but no medication. Do I have grounds to claim DLA?. I get a pension which is above the threashold for ESA and JSA so cannot get benefits. I am 57 years old and not really fit to work, especially full time.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
These are not usualy indiactions for DLA. Only heart angina pectoris may cause sgnificant reduce in physical activity and work capability,but it should be verified by cardiologist and it must be refracter to medical therapy
Wish you good health. Regards
