Last Updated: Jan. 5, 2021

With a variety of stylish options and custom engraved ID tags, Lauren’s Hope offers a large selection of medical alert jewelry for conditions such as Type 1 Diabetes.

Should I Wear a Medical Alert Bracelet for Type 1 Diabetes?

Type 1 Diabetes, or T1D, is a condition that requires constant monitoring and management. Because of the risk of dangerously low blood glucose numbers with Type One Diabetes, these situations can become serious medical emergencies very quickly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that, “...in an emergency situation, it is of prime importance to identify yourself as a person with diabetes and any related conditions, so you can obtain appropriate care.” Wearing a Type 1 Diabetes medical ID bracelet at all times can help improve the outcome of a diabetic emergency by alerting first responders to your condition so they are better able to evaluate the situation and provide the right assistance.

Type 1 vs. Type 2 Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes is predominantly diagnosed in childhood and young adults. Because of this, it’s important for children and young adults to wear medical IDs in case of a diabetic emergency. Our selection of children's type 1 diabetes bracelets can help parents have peace of mind that first responders have access to their child’s medical information if an emergency arises.

Type 2 Diabetes, on the other hand, is typically diagnosed in adults. Of course, adults are still at risk of diabetic emergencies. This is why it’s also important that adults with all forms of diabetes wear medical alert jewelry so emergency personnel can provide proper treatment quickly and efficiently.
