Why should someone with diabetes wear a MedicAlert medical ID ?

When you have a diabetic emergency, your sugar levels must be corrected quickly to save your life. However, sometimes your symptoms can resemble aggression or intoxication, leading paramedics and doctors down the wrong path which can delay appropriate treatment. Your MedicAlert ID jewelry instantly helps them understand your diabetic episode so they can correct your sugar levels. MedicAlert is there for you when every seconds count.  Sign Up
