Should I get one stating I am type 1 diabetic? Been so for 36 yrs, so why now? you may ask. Well I have a 5 and 6 yr old, and my medic alert bracelets suck.... (always falling off my arm, losing them etc). Just want any EMT or DR to know in case I can't talk (in the event of a car wreck or low blood sugars, etc etc etc). BTW I have great control of my diabetes and have only been hospitalized for it when I was diagnosed 36 yrs ago. I also have NO OTHER tattoos.

****ETA****  So I am headed to the parlor now.  Already talked to DR and it's a go!    Will post pics ASA I can!

Thanks everyone!

Got it!  LOVE IT!  Small and not too obvious.  It's all swollen and wrapped up now so tomorrow I will post pics.  (on the inside of my inner left wrist)  Thanks again, ladies!  :)

Sure. Why not? I think it's a good idea- it will serve a purpose.

Do it. Just get it done on the inside of your wrist so you can cover it with a bracelet if you need, but is still easy to find. It could come in handy.

I probably would. I've heard of it happening more and more often.

Yes
Dh wants one. Put it somewhere obvious. Maybe a tattoo OF a medical bracelet?

I would. It is a smart idea and is becoming a good trend. Definitely helpful in emergency cases. Just put somewhere easily noticed.

I am :)

I'm a type 1 diabetic also. I haven't worn a medical alert in years, but I'm about to get type 1 diabetic on my wrist since if I were to collapse they check your wrist and chest first. I would! How were your pregnancies?
