Medical I.D Tags For Diabetes
WHAT IS DIABETES?
Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar, for our bodies to use for energy. The pancreas, an organ that lies near the stomach, makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies.
When you have diabetes, your body either doesn"t make enough insulin or can"t use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes sugars to build up in your blood. Diabetes can cause serious health complications including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-extremity amputations. Diabetes is predicted by a clear set of symptoms, but it still often goes undiagnosed.
Diabetes is becoming increasingly more common throughout the world, due to increased obesity (also known as metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes) leading to higher incidences of type 2 diabetes.
WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR A PRE-ENGRAVED DIABETES TYPE 1 OR TYPE 2 MEDICAL IDENTIFICATION PENDANT

alerting medical staff and the general public to your diabetic condition.
