I know I have mentioned this several times recently, but I was diagnosed with diabetes not too long ago. Now, in a 6 week time period through diet and exercise, I was able to lower my Blood Glucose level enough to stop medication. I had to really watch my carb intake. Anyway it was recommended that I have a medical ID just in case. (You know there are some medications and such that will raise your blood sugar.) I contacted Lauren's Hope and they were very willing to work with me. I love their selection and that they do not look like regular medical bracelets. They are actually pretty! Now should anything happen where I am unable to tell someone I am diabetic, the bracelet will do so. I had my name, Diabetes II, 2 phone numbers, along with "no medications" engraved on the back of mine. I love it! I received the Sophie ($39.95)
You can find Lauren's Hope on Twitter and Facebook. If you have a child, spouse or loved one that needs a medical ID make sure that you stop by Lauren's Hop and see all that they have available. I am sure you will not be disappointed. Remember a Medical ID may be the only information emergency personnel will be able to receive.
From Lauren's Hope:
When you or your child was diagnosed with diabetes, your life instantly changed forever. As your doctor explained medical procedures, medications, and other lifestyle adjustments, you may have been overwhelmed thinking about all the things that would have to change. One thing that your condition shouldn't affect, though, is your individualized sense of style! In the past, medical bracelets have been big, bulky, impersonal and unattractive - which meant a lot of people would opt not to wear them.
That’s why Lauren’s Hope was founded - to create medical alert jewelry that people would actually want to wear. This inspiration for the business came from a family friend of the company’s founders. As a teenager with diabetes, Lauren refused to wear medical ID jewelry because it was “ugly” and could “draw attention” to her illness. Lauren’s mother asked for a fashionable medical ID to keep her daughter safe, and the rest is history.
Today, Lauren’s Hope is still dedicated to making beautiful medical ID jewelry for people of all ages, with any condition, and with any sense of style! Whether you have a style-savvy teenager with a penicillin allergy or you feel self-conscious wearing your own chunky diabetes ID to a dinner party, we can help you find a fashionable alternative that will keep you safe. People with diabetes, severe food, drug, and insect allergies, heart conditions, asthma, autism, a visual or hearing impairment, epilepsy, or any chronic illness need to wear medical alert jewelry with that information engraved, as well as people who are on certain medications or are gastric bypass, lap band or organ transplant patients.
In the event of an emergency, your medical ID will do more than just make you look good - it can also save your life. Your medical ID bracelet should be custom engraved with a few important details so medical personnel will know how to treat you best. They will need to know your name, your medical condition(s), any allergies and important medications that you have, and emergency contact numbers.
The winner will be able to choose from the following bracelets:
