Follow these 5 easy steps for the Best Diabetic Bracelet Engraving!
Your condition – be as specific as you can. Think about how long you want it to take the medical responders to figure out how to help you.
Common Diabetic engravings and abbreviations include:
Diabetes | Diabetic | T1 | T2 | T1 Diabetes | T2 Diabetes | Diabetes Type I | Diabetes Type II
Your Name – First and Last. In order for first responders to get your medical records and let your ICE contacts know who they have. You may lose your purse or wallet, so having your name clearly engraved on a medical ID is a safe bet.
Insulin Situation: Are you insulin dependent or need an insulin pump? This is important information for first responders.
Add to the Diabetes condition:
Insulin Pump | Ins.Dep | Insulin Dependent
Medications or allergies: Any long term medications are good to list (don’t worry about dosages). Listing severe food and drug allergies is crucial to avoid accidental drug administration.
Emergency contact information: Who do you want to be notified first if something were to happen to you? Emergency contacts aren’t just there for you, these contacts are helpful to nurses and doctors if you’re unconscious.
