Medical Identification

Identification tags are important for anyone who has a special health condition. In case of emergency, it is imperative for those with diabetes to have some sort of identification. If you were to get hurt and didn't wear your ID, how would the paramedics know you have diabetes? Some intravenous fluids have glucose, and if those were given to you, it could worsen your condition. There are a number of ways in which your emergency treatment may be different because of your diabetes.

The following companies make medical IDs, from bracelets to necklaces, charms and stickers.
