Wearing diabetic jewelry can be a life saver in an emergency situation. If you are in an accident and become unconscious, wearing diabetic jewelry can alert any rescuers or medical professionals of the kind of treatment they need to provide. It could make a difference between life and death for you.
If you are newly diagnosed with diabetes, trying to get your insulin under control can take awhile. Because your blood levels will be fluctuating you could go into a sugar induced coma or become so disoriented that you will be too sick to tell anyone what is wrong with you. Wearing any kind of diabetic jewelry will save your life.
Why Wear Medical Alert Jewelry
If your blood sugar drops too low you will be in a confused state and may not be able to speak or communicate. It may also prevent confusion on the part of the police officer or medical provider as to whether the confused state is related to alcohol or drug intoxication and whether you get the appropriate treatment.
The American Diabetes Association recommends that all people with diabetes wear a diabetes medical alert identification bracelet, especially if you’re on a diabetes medication that can lower the blood sugar and cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar reactions).
