Listen to your diabetes mother……
I’d like everyone to love themselves and their health by purchasing a medical identification bracelet. We all love to get jewelry for any and every occasion, don’t we girls? Medical identification is extremely important in the event you have an emergency and can’t tell the people taking care of you about your health and or health conditions. For those living with type 1 and taking insulin daily, hypoglycemia or low blood sugar is a possibility. And it is important that our type 2 divas wear a medical identification bracelet because it will also indicate any other medical conditions like heart disease or past transplant surgeries you’ve had – information that emergency medical personnel need to know about if they’re treating you.
So, take advantage of this opportunity to splurge on a little extra bling, but remember to go with the classic medical identification bracelet or necklace. Those with extra sparkle or creativity might not be recognized by emergency responders.
