If you or a family member are travelling with diabetes, then the chances are, medications, suitable food, and GP letters for air travel will be high on your to-do list, along with researching how your destination and it’s conditions might affect your diabetes, and arranging suitable insurance. Diabetes shouldn’t prevent you going on holiday, but it can be useful to be well prepared, just in case there is an emergency and medical services need access to your key information.
One option is to carry a form of medical ID to identify you and your medical condition. Medic Alert Bracelets offer a practical and stylish solution that will stay on your wrist for a long time to come, providing fast access to information during a critical time. Every second counts when a friend or family member is seeking help for you, or you’re under-going treatment. These bracelets could make one job easier and will alert everyone to your diabetes, and perhaps any allergies or treatment preferences too. With diabetes, a condition where your health can go downhill rapidly, it’s important to have this information at your fingertips if you can’t speak for yourself.
The Medic Alert collection of jewellery offers a way to get information fast, but there’s also an element of fun as well. There are bracelets to suit different wrist sizes, budgets, and tastes.
Each piece is fitted with a disc emblazoned with the Medic Alert logo on the front, and key information on the back. This includes emergency contacts, medical condition details, and your medicalert membership number. Medic Alert medical records are fully secure and includes details of current conditions, allergies, medications and any wishes you have on the tag.
Further information in these secure records can be accessed in an emergency any time of day or night, with staff able to converse in 100 languages via their helpline number.
The Bracelet Designs
Although Medic Alert bracelets have a very practical purpose, they look great on as well. Every piece is handcrafted by a team of experts using high quality materials that are built to last, and crafted to suit any sizing needs or other adjustments. There are chains that come in 3 weights, sports bands, and even a watch themed design.
The online shop has leather craft, urban, heritage, contemporary silver, and gold among the collections on offer.
Who Are They Suitable For?
The bracelets and ID tags they feature are ideal for diabetic travellers, but are aimed at wide ranging conditions, whether you’ve had a stroke, got a visual impairment, or are suffering from a long-term health condition such as Parkinson’s. People travelling with high blood pressure should also consider using them, especially if this is combined with heart disease.
If health conditions are part and parcel of your family, you can be safe in the knowledge that you can travel with information at hand to help medical treatment if you need it. Medic Alert offers support for customers, especially when they are planning trips abroad, and also for schools and healthcare professionals in the benefits of this type of ID, and recognition of these products.
