About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 21 years. The company is led by CEO Lori Torman, who has an eye for great quality and classic styles. In the early days of medical id bracelets (we're talking 1960's), medical alert bracelets were pretty boring -- basically engraved metal tags with curb link chains. The same styles were offered for children, just smaller (no wonder kids didn't want to wear them). And, by the end of the 20th century things hadn't improved that much. Lori was among the first to recognize that medical id's could be fashion conscious, and in 2005 launched designs in leather as well as stainless, and introduced polyester kids medical id bracelets that had cute designs. The sport strap line of child medical id's she introduced nearly 20 years ago is still the most popular line of children's medical jewelry on the market today. And, we now produce more than 100 different styles of medical alert bracelets and necklaces for men and women. Our engraved bracelets are individually custom engraved by our team of master engravers, ship within three (M-F) business days from the date you order, and all products come with a 90 warranty against manufacturing defects. Please come and shop with us today. It will be our pleasure to serve you.

How to Safely Manage Diabetes and Improve Blood Sugar

How to Safely Manage Diabetes and Improve Blood Sugar

1st Jun 2022

Nearly 30 million adults and children in the U.S. have diabetes, 95% of whom have Type 2 diabetes. Worldwide, an estimated 350 million people have diabetes, and that number is on the rise.

Differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes has been referred to as “adult-onset,” or noninsulin dependent diabetes, as historically it has tended to occur more often in adults and does not always require insulin supplementation or replacement. With Type 2 diabetes, a person’s body either resists the effects of insulin, an important hormone for regulating glucose in the cells, or doesn’t produce enough insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels.

With Type 1 diabetes, the body produces little or no insulin. The condition has been referred to as “juvenile,” or insulin-dependent diabetes, since it tends to occur more often in children and adolescents, and requires insulin supplementation or replacement.

While Type 1 diabetes tends to be genetic and usually appears in childhood or adolescence, it can occur in adulthood as well. Similarly, Type 2 diabetes tends to affect adults, although the number of children with Type 2 diabetes has been on the rise in recent decades.

Obesity and Diabetes

Diabetes is often a complication of obesity, and although there is no cure for Type 2 diabetes, losing weight can reverse the condition, in some cases.

Managing blood sugar is critical for people with diabetes, and keeping a daily log of your blood sugar levels to share with your doctor is an important component of self-care.
