Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With Diabetes Type 1, your body does not make insulin. With Diabetes Type 2, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. You can also have pre-diabetes. This means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Having pre-diabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting Diabetes Type 2.
Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes.
Blood tests can show if you have Diabetes. One type of test, the A1C, can also check on how you are managing your Diabetes. Exercise, weight control and sticking to your meal plan can help control your diabetes. You should also monitor your blood glucose level and take medicine if prescribed.
Our Diabetes medical alert bracelets, medical ID or necklaces are critically important and may save your life in an emergency situation. If you are ever hurt or injured – and not able to speak for yourself – our Diabetes medical alert bracelets or medical ID may be the only way first responders or doctors know how to begin treating you.
According to the American Diabetes Association:
“Many people with diabetes, should have a medical ID with them at all times. In the event of a severe hypoglycemic episode, a car accident, or other emergency, the medical ID can provide critical information about the person’s health status.”
